About the Artist:

"Self-expression should have no restrictions or boundaries. I refuse to be limited by a prescribed label or definition. Self-Expressionist is the self-proclaimed flag I will wave. Art, music, photography, breathing, & all the things I put on and surround myself in,  are ALL self expression for me.

This truth became clear with the late 1970's early stages of the DIY/punk/hardcore movement. The idea that anyone could and should participate in their own form of self-expression burst every door and window inside of me wide open.

I have been a key member in bands that have made recordings for such labels as Touch & Go, Estrus, Sympathy For The Record Industry, In The Red, Sub Pop, and Kill Rock Stars. I also produced bands for all the labels above and more, both in the US and overseas. 

Journalists and critics have cited  bands I have been a part of,  as major factors in starting everything from funk-punk, skate rock, grunge, and garage. 

The Big Boys, Poison 13, Bad Mutha Goose, Lord High Fixers, and Monkeywrench are just some of the bands I was a founding member of. I was inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame in 1996 and later inducted again as a member of the Big Boys. 

Besides the bands, I have composed and recorded music for several choreographers working in Austin. These pieces have been performed in Austin, New York, and California. 

I also created soundtracks for the documentaries "Who is Bozo Texino?" by Bill Daniel, and "Drive-in Blues" Jan Krawitz.  

Like music, art has always been something that I always did,  and do. They are intertwined in my DNA. I have shown art and painted murals here in the states and abroad. In the summer of 2015, I was honored and humbled to be asked to do a solo show at the Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery. That show traveled to 2 other museums. 

I have had residencies with Void Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland, with AS220 in Providence RI, and with I.A.M. in Berlin. I was part of the reimagining of the Black Mountain School that became School Of The Alternative. I have also produced art for books, album covers, skateboards, clothing, and advertisements. 

I sign my work with "Your name here" It's a call to arms for the viewer to participate in their own individual forms of self-expression.

After ALL that I have gotten to be a part of so far, I keep moving forward hoping I haven't seen the best thing yet. Like the air I breathe, it keeps me alive."

YOUR name here!
