find great joy in the act of making art. Painting helps me fill my soul
and keep me sane. When I seek to create a new painting there is no
perfect outcome. A painting can’t be perfect, there is no right or
wrong. I paint because I need to create. My paintings and my process are
about taking my feelings and my emotions and trying to create something
that I hope others can connect with.
time I have realized that painting is a lot like life - not perfect. It
can be a lot easier to take a risk in a painting and if I make a
mistake, I can paint over it and start again. My painting process is
relatable to my life. In both my paintings and my life I’m trying not
to dwell on mistakes but to keep painting until those layers can turn
into something better.
just try to keep my focus on the process or the act of making art and
creating something to share with the world. I hope that my art can have
an impact upon people and is something they can connect to in their own
lives. Hopefully it serves as a reminder to see the beauty in the
process, but it’s also ok if people just see my work as something pretty
to hang above their couch. Either way I’m going to keep creating work.

Time Lapse Videos
One of the styles I enjoy painting in is similar to pointillism
where I apply thousands and thousands of little brush strokes on top of
one another. This layering of brush strokes plays with color
combinations and creates movement in my images. Here are time-lapse
videos of two recent paintings with this technique. The other series of
work I have been developing are more graphic where I build layers of
underpaintings, sanding between layers, and then applying large graphic
images to create a push and pull of color and space.
