Born and raised in Ottawa Ontario. I love my freinds family and my harley davidson. I started painting in hghschool where i spent most of my time doodling when I wasn't skipping. I dropped out in grade 12 and had to work full time to pay the bills. On my time off I would take my motorcycle out to the country and find a sweet fishing spot or place to hike and make a campfire lunch. I did a litte bit of drawing and painting but i mostly stopped for a few years.
Eventually I finished my highschool and I was still working the same job with no moving up. With the uncertanity of school I wasn't sure how I could escape. Thats when i picked up the paint brush again. Any time I would get inspired I would do a sketch and then paint it. I get inspired by lights , colors , experiences or the way I felt about something. I believe in balance and karma and I hope to inspire people to be more enviromentally freindly. We should appreciate the beauty and the gift of nature and the gift of life itself.
Picking up the brush helped me pick up more good habbits and helped me break the bad ones. Its truly an escape for me and I hope I can inspire someone to find their escape. Any body who took the time to read up to here should now how much I appreciate the time and any support to help me as an artist.
