His work is split between several diverse bodies of work that reflect his varied aesthetic tastes and interests. At present, his artwork includes more traditional media such as watercolor, gouache, and oil painting. He also produces work in the realms of assemblage and mixed media.

They specialize in contemporary works ranging from oils to assemblage with genres of work that include realism, outsider art, and pop-surrealism.
