About his art:

His multi-layered paintings take imagery from old country music publicity photos and sheet music and envelope them in a haze of ironic nostalgia. A respected visual artist he is best known for his striking portraits of country music icons including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley.

He describes his painting technique thusly: “Long process of layering, scraping, minute attention to detail. Basically, I create a very unstable surface with acrylics and pastel on top of each other and work on top of that with Sharpies, felt pens, white out, gunk, snot and whatever comes to hand.”
