Words of Wisdom to upcoming artists: “It’s more than just art….most artists have the art part down. It’s everything else you have to master: business, social skills, integrity. That’s what you need to be successful.”
Gen Info on Life and Career: “It’s my job to make products look good for my clients, to paint wild paintings to inspire people and to satisfy my own imagination. It’s also my job to spend as much time with my family and most importantly, to surf everyday for the rest of my life! Living the Dream – that’s my job.”
