Visual Art – Houston, TX

ABOUT ME ~ ARTIST: Baseball is my life. I have loved the game more than anything else in the world ever since I was a kid growing up in Houston, TX, which is one of the world’s best breeding grounds for future pro baseball prospects. I am a left handed pitcher, otherwise known as a “SOUTHPAW “. After earning a baseball scholarship to Rice University, I was selected by the Chicago Cubs in the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft. Something else that has always caught my attention, being a lefty and on the creative side, is art, design, and painting. One of my favorite things is just true simplicity of color. When I was a 4 years old, I painted a baseball bat going through a hamburger because the assignment was to paint your favorite 2 things. Well apparently I slpeoduced a really unique piece that took the teachers and my parents by surprise. Ever since that day, my mom always told me what a good artist I was. Years later, after playing ball, I started using spray paint to paint some of my leftover apparel I had previously designed and sold for my Youth Tournament Teams and Training Business. Well I was putting old canvases behind the piece I was painting (shoe, hat, Tshirt, hoody, backpack). Well the canvases were actually coming out really cool looking and they weren’t even the piece that was being designed. A few friends started to see the stuff that I had painted and immediately wanted all of it. So then word got around and I started doing custom pieces for people. I haven’t run across anyone yet that hasn’t said how much they like my artwork. I was fortunate to meet and work in studio with several very successful artists over the last few months and got amazing feedback from all of them. Every one of them told me I should focus on making my art and nothing else because I am a very talented artist. I have decided to invest all of my time, heart, mind, soul, sweat, blood, tears and make this happen. I am officially opening up my portfolio pieces for sale to the public as an active working artist going by the name “SOUTHPAW “. I hope that my art helps brighten up peoples homes and offices rooms all over the world. ...more
