Meet the artist at a reception during Sylva's next Art Stroll Friday, Oct. 11. Justin has fine pieces of original art priced to sell.

Artist's Statement:

I am a self-taught artist. I love to paint, take photos, draw, screen print, design, play music, and experiment with new and unfamiliar mediums. I have always felt compelled to create. It is a welcomed compulsion innate within me. For me, art reinforces my humanity. It is a mirror and filter for how I experience and interpret reality. I believe the same applies to the viewer.

I am inspired by every moment and facet of life. I am constantly compelled to create by life's paradoxes, contradictions, juxtapositions, ugliness, beauty, truth, struggle, and mystery...Nuances and the unspoken...The natural world and the industrialized world. Integrity, truth, and authenticity are important to me.  Mainly, I hope my art resonates in some way with the viewer, whether it be emotionally, intellectually, or otherwise.

I live in a small rural town in the mountains of Western North Carolina. In addition to pieces for sale, I am available by commission.
