The only thing I love more than eating food is drawing it. My art pulls influence from 20th century American cartoonists, 21st century anime, Art Nouveau & Deco, and modern street art. The result is a combination of bold lines, vibrant colors, and strong symmetrical composition that celebrates the culinary arts.
Unlike most artists who draw still life, I use my art to educate people on the origin of their food. Most of my artwork is drawn on site while enjoying the food portrayed. I take care to speak with the wait staff, bartenders, cooks, and owners to learn what their food is about. Consequentially, my pieces do more than show the finished dish, wine, beer, cider, or cocktail; they actively depict the ingredients, tasting notes, and agricultural sources of these tasteful subjects.
I create my art to connect others to food and the people who cook and serve that food. As the world becomes more digital, it's my goal to use my digital art to rekindle the two analog things we all need: bio-culture and the social networks they create.
