§ As a multidisciplinary artist and creative professional I provide decorative and innovative solutions for residential and commercial clients for the beautification of a space in Denver and beyond. This form of art combines the artistic skill sets as a painter alongside design and design build which can be effectively utilized in forms of Public Art and other types of installation artwork. The types of projects have evolved over the span of my career with an emphasis returning me back to my artwork-most specifically paintings. The vast skillsets I have gained with hands on experience and collaborations with other artists in a variety of disciplines I feel has given me a wide range of knowledge to expand my creations in numerous capacities. In addition, I have learned first hand the operation and development of a small business in the art and design industry with the numerous facets that entails. I seek connection with others whose visions are to co-create eco-conscious environments that utilize sustainable practices and continue to bring awareness to the importance of protecting and respecting the Earth and all of its inhabitants. The innate connection of the Arts and Sciences.
