I've painted as long as I can remember, but taking fine arts classes "for fun" in college became a massive creative roadblock. After three years without picking up a paintbrush, I got back into painting in 2007 by embracing limitations. I stopped using brushes and I stopped caring about figurative work. This selection of my paintings reflects that - these are all based on photos I took that I wanted to recreate with the beauty I felt when I saw the original image.
My painting hones in on the colors and textures that I find in nature, archaeology, and even mythology. I believe strongly in the ethos of place, and my paintings are designed to recreate that feeling for the viewer. Then, I take it a step further and design accessories based on my paintings so that everyone to whom they speak can enjoy them in creative ways.
