The process of becoming a painter has taken more than 20 years. As a young adult, art was effortless. I created with intention and confidence, communicating a nascent understanding of my world. But, when I enrolled in college I chose art history as my major instead of painting. I was convinced that I didn’t have enough to say. I didn’t realize that I was simply afraid.
After graduation, I began a circuitous career that took me from museum jobs to technology and marketing. I spent my days
I use painting to explore the deepest meaning of existence. Why are we all here? What does it mean to be human? What can we feel but not speak? My painting allows this exploration. It creates an opening for conversation and expression that invites the viewer to take an equal role in making meaning.
My style is steeped in the New York School – those Abstract Expressionists who made art filled with philosophical meaning. While my style has roots there, it is also informed by Japanese brush painting and a twist of graffitti – it is urgent, messy and multi-faceted.
