My style of art is called, " Post Modern Barbequeism " which is inspired by the essence, culture, and ritual of barbecueing. The original artwork I produce ranges in mediums and techniques as I let concept and narrative dictate overall style.
I am a mixed media artist as I work in, but am not limited to charcoal, conte, watercolor, acrylic, spray paint, screen printing, collage, ink, and alternative materials.
I developed my techniques while in Savannah while constantly seeking new techniques throughout my career. I am a colorist by ature and it is a theme consistant in my work.
The fashion aspect of my work is Urban Monkism Fashion using patterns based off my artwork I design leggings and other assorted women's clothing while also producing original t-shirt designs with the whole screen printing process done in-house.
During my career as an artist I have published several books including a novel, collection of poetry, art books, a strategic professional practices guide for creatives, and an alphabet book.
I have donated time and work to several charities including Choices, Big Brothers/ Big Sisters, Keys4Kids, and donate my time a visiting instructor at Central Ohio Art Academy specializing in mixed-media.
A project near and dear to my heart is a collaboration I have with Fonta Flora Brewery and Defiant Whisky. Annually, Urban Monk imperial stout - aged with Defiant Whisky oak spirals is brewed. We teamed up as friends to produce an event held at Fonta Flora Brewery called "Funk & The Monk" which is the beer release coinciding with an exhibition of all new work I produce specifically for this event.
Styles/themes I work in - abstract, landscapes, seascapes, portraits, pet portraits, illustrations, paintings, large scales paintigs, collage, mixed media, sports, flowers, political, murals, and commissions.
