Matt was given his first oil paint set at the age of five from his mother Joy who also loved to paint. He then had to take a break at age 7 since his brother ate the oil paints....true story!
He has always been inspired by nature, and enjoys painting somewhere he want's to be. Matt enjoys nature, water, the ocean and anywhere away from the crowd. When he takes a break from work or painting you'll probably find him fishing. Matt also had the privilege to study under an incredible artist, teacher and philosopher Simon Michaels from Rockport Tx.
