How did you get interested in art? Has it always been a talent of yours?

My parents are clay artists so I grew up in the studio strapped to my dads back as he worked. When we lived in New York, they made clay jewelry and I always wanted to help, so my mom let me make my own jewelry. In my teenage
years, we moved to Florida and I used to travel with my dad doing art shows around the country. It was also around that time that I discovered that I could draw and paint and before I painted my first painting, my dad bought me a huge van as incentive to make a career for myself. I was exhibiting at art shows before I went to college.

When did you first start doing art that featured nudity or erotic themes?

The first painting that I ever painted for my own benefit was a self portrait of me licking my own nipple, a picture my photographer friend, Miss E Lotsey, took one drunken night. From then I knew that I wanted to explore human sexuality in my art. After a couple of years schlepping flower still lives, I decided one night, that it was time and haven’t looked back since.

What are your inspirations or ideas when you start working on a piece?

As an avid masturbator, and self-proclaimed pervert, sex has always been a major fascination in my life. My ideas stem from my own previsions and fantasies, usually a beautiful twist on a morbid tragedy in someone else’s
life.

Have you ever worried that a piece may offend others?

No.

Art wouldn’t be art if it didn’t invoke some kind of emotion or thought.

That is what makes us human. I live to offend people.

That’s when I know its good.

What pieces are you most proud of?

I am proud of all my pieces. Each painting is my best at that particular moment and marks that moment in my life that I was willing to share. The ones that I love the most, are the ones that I have not yet painted.

Do you have a website?

Yes.
