Artist's Profile

Bring to life creative ideas through design and visual means.

My latest visual expression comes through my Boot Scootin' Dance Paintings.  Introducing dance into the creative mix allows me to be self aware of my body and discover myself potential.  To experience and feel the energy generated from my body and transferred to the surface below.  The realization that your body is a paint brush making marks upon a dance floor canvas.  Capturing the energy and rhythm of each tap, scufff, stomp and slide.

Another art adventure has been exploring Street Art and the process of stenciling and aerosol painting.  I love the quick layering technique of stencils (similar to my love of digitally utilizing photoshop layers) and the fresh and intense color realized as you attack a surface with spray paint.

I enjoy using Traditional and Digital art approaches to compliment many creations of art. Each particular artwork's mood and gesturing determines whether to use a digital Art method, a Traditional Art method or both. With the use of a versatile supply of art mediums, tools and art vocabulary, my main objective is to bring to life creative ideas through design and visual means.

As a child growing up, I have always had an interest in painting and drawing and enjoyed sharing this interest with my family, especially with my older sister Chris, an artist herself. This interest in art was further inspired by my grandfather, Samuel Allegro who was a self-taught artist who would always entertain my sister and I with drawings of the most magnificent portraits and caricatures. Pop-pop Sam was also known for his beautiful pastel drawings of landscapes, still life, and family & friend portraits. Later in High School and College I learned about my great-grandfather, Michael Vogel, an artist too, who traveled the streets of Highlandtown, MD with the renowned artist William Octavec painting screens. Together they started the folk art of Baltimore Screen Paintings back in the early 1900s.

I graduated with a BA in Digital & Imaging Arts at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Since graduating, I have had over 25 years experience in creating Commercial and Government/Military computer graphics, animations, and training programs.
