About Me

My Background

I've been drawing and painting since before I can remember.  As an artist, I've been drawn to realism and elements of surrealism for most of my life.  I've always viewed art as a journey, an exploration to find new ways of communicating the qualities and emotion of a subject.  The shifts in my style are seemingly heavily influenced, both intentional and unintentional in the way that I see the world and my palette. 

Commissioned painting for Wesley Schultz, lead singer of "The Lumineers"

My Inspiration

I find people to be far and away the most interesting subjects.  The story that a face tells is one I'm nearly always interested in.  Certain catalogs of music and individual songs have heavily influenced certain pieces in my portfolio.
