Traveling to the most remote regions in the world, throughout over 70 countries, one can only imagine how the experience has shaped his views, as an artist. As a contemporary abstract painter, Matt’s work is vibrant, expressive and huge!
In addition to rescuing men from sharks, traversing the Amazon Basin and driving zodiacs through the center of icebergs the size of downtown Seattle, Matt has lived life as an entertainer, writer, photographer, humanitarian, adventurer, entrepreneur & executive. Although viewed as somewhat of a Renaissance Man, Matt's greatest love is painting!
