Born September 12th 1985, playing drums has always been a pillar of his joy along with sketching animals, cartoon characters and scenery as a kid. Andre learned to play an entire 5-piecedrum kit in 1990 not knowing that drums would take center stage in his art work. He began playing drums touring and painting with a live audience all in the same night in 2010. This taught him to be structured and prepared. 

By 2017 Andre started incorporating drums into his life like paintings. Scenery, characters, and animals are still his vocal points. These components including drums revolve around rhythms and patterns, he believes. His art always has a strong presence of colors and depth building, adding strong interest to viewers. His art work shifted from 4’x6’ canvases to a larger scale, painting mural on walls. His “Drum Head “paintingsappeared around Ohio galleries from 2018-2020. Andre’s main objective is to express his motivations through his paintings.
