Grade SchoolThe question artists hear the most, second only to, “Where do you get your ideas?” is “How did you get started?” The answer is usually pretty simple – I wanted to make things so badly that I couldn’t stop myself. The ages and activities that led each of us to this realization may vary, but that motivation is universal.

I love making art. I always have. As soon as I developed the hand-eye coordination necessary to wield a crayon, I was off and running. There is no time in my memory when I was not creating something. Many people seem to "grow out" of the habit of creative expression as they move from grade school into young adulthood, I just kept making things. Starting in high school I began entering competitions and considering theHigh School possibility of art as an integral part of my future.

During my undergraduate years I struggled with the practical choices of employability vs pursuing my dreams. In the end that indomitable drive to create won out and I made the decision to pursue a degree in Art with a capital A. Ultimately, I ended up with a B.A.A. (a Bachelor of Applied Arts - think of it as halfway between a B.A. and a B.F.A.), and a double minor in Art History and Psychology.

After graduating in 2005 I spent several years only making art for myself, my friends, and my family. Then, in late August of 2012 I decided it was time to make a decision. I could be practical, finally set my art aside, make room in my home by getting rid of all the supplies and pad my bank account by no longer spending money on those supplies, or... Start sharing with the rest of the world again. You're here on my website, so it's probably pretty obvious how that turned out. I haven't looked back since.

NowMy diverse body of work explores the properties of color and texture. I play with a variety of styles and subjects, including abstract pieces, high contrast portraits, and cartoonish illustrations. No matter the medium, I do tend to enjoy the stranger aspects of the human experience and I'm not too worried abut whether the reality of a particular subject is primarily objective or subjective. I hope something here sparks your imagination the way simply living in the world sparks mine.
