My art career was launched by inspiration from my grandfather, artist, Tom Beecham. His pulp fiction illustrations, western and wildlife pieces were part of a larger idea I wanted to explore. My unique style started to develop at an early age growing up in New York. I found equal inspiration from graffiti on passing trains as the impressionists I saw in museums. My main gallery has been located in Colorado for over a decade. It is here that I tell the stories of Dirty Modern West on canvas.
Over the years, my prolific work has expanded the world of Dirty Modern West and is showcased all over from the private collections of professional athletes to hotel lobbies. Dirty Modern West is an amalgamation of international ideas, pulp fiction and redacted history, repacked and sold as authentic Americana. It is in this beautiful decay, heart break and overlapping eras that inspire me.
