I'm so very excited about this work having spent the past 3 months working on it. I had a vision of what I wanted to see and accomplish with this work and was thinking a lot about the paintings of Alex Katz and David Hockney when executing this. The figure needed to be present, but flat, almost abstracted in its visual elements which would then contrast heavily against the head of flowers and vines. The colors were to be vibrant, espousing emotion and beauty, yet actively reacting with one another, pushing and pulling. Needless to say I've had a lot of sleepless nights over this one, and am thrilled to present it to this audience. I think Katz and Hockney would be pleased.

My story is easy enough to tell…I’ve been creating since childhood driven by a need for order amongst disorder, new harmonies amongst objects, visually seduced by repetition, pattern, and color and onward the dance goes. At some point around the age of 15 or 16 a rather observant art teacher stepped in and put me on the path from wayward youth to wayward artist. From there it’s been an epicurean vacation of creation like a Jacques Cousteau dive special into the deepest reaches of my mind. Sadly, no sharks. The discoveries are constant, the sun is always shining, and the ocean is always beautifully blue. The rest is nature.
My work is held in multiple corporate and private collections throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
About my work:
I am an explorer at heart possessed with a need to look beyond traditions in style and question the unknown. Because of this the works are seeded in process painting and material discovery. Elements of drawing, textural curiosities and color/form relationships combine to create a unique aesthetic in each work. Depending on what is going on in the world at the time there will also be elements of nature and/or humanity in my work that mix about with abstracted components to create a sort of historic bibliophile in the paint…essentially a moment in time that reflects for a lifetime.
