I grew up in the best times, for off the wall art and the beginnings of the lowbrow presences like Stanley Mouse ( I got a chance to work with Mr. Mouse in the late 90’s) and Big Daddy Roth. This was also the time of the Weirdos and Nutty Mad figures that you could buy for .25 cents a piece. I was able to get the rights to Nutty Mads in the early 2010’s and created a line of shirts with the old figures represented on them. This is my personal favorite…the Champ!
About the Artist
My life as an artist is rooted in my multi-cultural childhood. Raised in the U.S. by Irish parents, I lived in Las Vegas, NV from the age of 10 to 17. During a formative trip to New York, NY when I was 14, I encountered the School of Visual Arts. It was an eye-opening discovery of the hypnotic beauty of creation and graphic design. Over time, I realized that designing is a reflection of our desire for pattern and rhythm. As a trained professional graphic designer (BA, School of Visual Arts, 1982), I explore typography, color and pattern in its two-dimensional form. My graphic design work includes freelance projects ranging from brochure, newsletter and book design to architectural promotional material. In recent years and on a personal level, I find myself also drawn to the challenges of working with computer programs such as Z-Brush, 3D Max and Maya. Challenges that I approach without reserve and with wild expectations!
