Reed typically works in mixed media and enjoys the process of discovery never knowing exactly where his exploration will take him. Largely self taught he has always drawn for the fun of it. At one point he chose graphic design and illustration over fine art in order to make a living but he always continued a more artistic personal inquiry.
Earlier in his life Reed endeavored to draw realistically even scientifically accurate but oddly often what would emerge would be more psychological or symbolic. Evolving from ball point pen to more colorful rendering he now seeks to be more spontaneous and expressive while maintaining a degree of recognizability.
He loves experimenting with digital photography, too
