About Me and My Designer Pocket Squares, Scarves, and More
I wasn’t always known for his designer pocket squares, but art has always been a key influence in my life. Today, many of my designs incorporate mixed media and inspirations from classic cartoons that served as formative influences during my childhood. My work is all about bringing that latent joy and excitement into the forefront of modern audiences’ minds. Through explorations of nostalgia and the vibrant color that sets my favorite art styles apart, I strive to create something new and exciting out of the bold ideas of his past.
Far more than just cool pocket squares, my pieces aim to inspire a reevaluation of the materials I transform. There’s so much to be said in the design of a simple accessory, and my goal is to say it all in active, unapologetic color. When you wear one of my designs, you’ll attract attention for sure. However, you’ll also be part of something bigger – the revelation that there is value in the seemingly chaotic, and passion in ever pigment that comprises a unique piece of art.
Since my first forays into the world of art, my vision has evolved and grown into something that’s unlike any other artist’s. Through childhood influences and professional schooling, I have retained a sincere love of the work that shows in my pocket squares for sale.
