What I Do

No two artists are alike.  Some are more unique than others.  Sometimes an artist isn’t just an artist.  Beyond the art, beyond the painting, my experience includes a variety of creative arenas.  With a strong technical and intellectual background beyond just artistic talents, the “smartistic” way is my philosophy of not only working creatively but with ingenuity.
