Born in 1973 in Virginia, I was lucky to have spent my early life surrounded by art. My art-teacher mother would take the family on frequent visits to museums in Washington D.C. and, occasionally, New York City.
I went to art school with the goal of becoming a commercial graphic designer. Despite not taking any painting classes, I practiced the medium on my own and fell in love with it. I set aside my commercial art pursuit to focus on painting full-time.
In 1996 I discovered computers, excelled in graphic arts, and soon created a web design business, prompting a hiatus from painting. Many years later my passion for painting resurfaced and revealed itself as my favorite way of artistic self-expression.
The method I have developed allows me to be spontaneous. I approach each piece with the curiosity of an adventurer, following lines like roads around bends and textures like rocky canyons, wondering what is around the corner.
With every painting’s inception, I have no idea what the final piece will look like. Its fate is presented to me as I progress. The deep mysterious subconscious is revealed to me throughout the entire process, shapeshifting as it advances towards its final frame. The result is a riddle, its meaning dependent on the viewer.
Much of my content seems supernatural and mystical, no surprise since I have spent most of my life as a spiritual seeker. Dreams are an underlying theme in my work.
Not only do we dream while sleeping, I have realized our waking hours are also spent dreaming, with no break between the two. “Life is but a dream,” sums up the idea.
On a mission to share my artistic language throughout the world, I have committed my career to expressing myself as a full-time painter. After years of learning to let go, I have allowed my artistic voice to surface; I am grateful for the discovery.
