Born in Louisiana. Started painting murals 11 years ago in Strawn’s Eat Shop in Shreveport Louisiana. Continued to paint for the Strawn’s chain as well as the Counter Culture chain throughout Texas and Louisiana. Moved to Austin 6 years ago after earning my BA from LSU. Currently work as a freelance muralist in the Austin area. Most public work to date is the 8th and Congress mural located on the side of Hickory Street Bar and Grill in Austin, Texas.
Oil and Acrylic
Work varies per project but tends toward the surreal and whimsical. Oil paintings tend to have a much more abstract look than murals.
