Artistic energy has been with me my entire life. I remember being a little kid and creating beaded bracelets and necklaces with my older brother, weaving neon-colored hot pads from a Christmas present one year and constructing elaborate tree forts with fierce imagination.
I began drawing at a very young age, progressing into painting in high school. Somewhere in between childhood and my 20’s I took to djing and music production and it is here, that I picked up photography and graphic design. Even at that time I still had my hands in illustrations and various painting projects. 2009 found me leaving Florida and heading West to Colorado. This is where I re-found myself and re-kindled my passion for fine art.
In 2010, Ghost River Art was birthed in the west cliffs of Loveland, CO and I started to take my work seriously. My hands could not stop creating and my mind and heart could not stop learning new techniques in both painting and design. In 2014, I gathered enough courage to paint live for the first time at a small artistic gathering in Fort Collins, CO.
Since then, my focus, determination and intense passion has allowed me to create and share my work all over the world. I have been able to paint live with some of my favorite musicians: Rising Appalachia, Dirtwire, LeahSong, Ott, Phutureprimitive, Bibi McGill, Don Carlos, Del the Funky Homosapien just to name a few.
Art has been my friend for as long as I can remember. I drew characters before coloring inside the lines of coloring books. That being said, I’ve always only known my art to be an extension of myself.. my passion. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago, that I started to truly listen to my surroundings – to listen to my visions. I believe my work is here to invoke memories, knowledge and truth that has been forgotten in today’s world. It is to give voice to energies and Beings that have seemingly been forgotten and to remind us all of the Sacredness of life and the magic within ourselves.
I will continue to Raise the Vibration and hold the positive Light I want to see in others and the World. My endeavors will always be diligent, passionate and fiercely created in love, with an intensity of Lions - of Hawks - of Wolves - of the Sun.
