This is a sample of selected work I’ve done as an artist, photographer, graphic designer, and director. My work has always been some form of mixed media, whether it’s putting experimental audio and soundscapes to video, painting, drawing, image manipulation, or film.
My work in music goes back a long time, starting with performance photography, album covers, and concert flyers. This is a tiny sampling of my work in the music industry circa 1997 to the present. This collection includes graphic work, zine art, and mixed media work on canvas, paper, video, and sound.

Recent Work 2017-2018
A lot of my work is inspired by mid-century Abstract Expressionism including artists such as Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, and many others. My work in this area explores the relationship between color and structure, and is inspired by urban sprawl, industrial expansion, and cityscapes. Near Dark 2018 Joe Wallace, Acrylic on Wood (48×24)
