Artist's Statement

I relate an athlete’s hopes of greatness to my own ambitions as an artist. A sunset experienced with friends, my girlfriend’s skin, and strategies of surviving as an artist: some things that inspire me. The paint is brushed, dripped, squeegeed, scratched, scraped, and squeezed right out of the tube. Under-layers are strategically revealed. In my paintings there is frustration, longing, excitement, hope, humor, futility, and loss. The result is visual tension and unscripted drama that alludes to the human experience.


I have a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University and a MFA in Visual Arts from Purchase College, State University of New York. Recently, my work has been shown at Academic Gallery, Open Space, FJORD, and OUTLET Fine Art. I have participated in several artist residencies including Ragdale, Sambalikhaan, and ADA Gallery. In 2014, I was nominated for the Rema Hort Mann Foundation NY Emerging Artist Grant. My portfolio and CV can be found at
