His fine art paintings, created on panels and murals, transmit his love for different surface patterns and the way these can guide an idea and subject he is working on. Soulful and fantastical, his artworks balance realism and abstraction, with the use of recycled material such as doors and driftwood making him an artist which strongly believes in sustainability.
