Hello. I live in Boise, Idaho and do art full time. Painting and drawing are my main focus and I'm fortunate to have had the support to pursue this full time for the last 8 or so years.
My mission with art is to inspire others. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, but the more I do the better I seem to understand how art can impact lives and the world in a positive way, and what kind of role I aspire to improve upon along the way.
The visual language of what I investigate and experiment with tends toward complexity, and trying to form some simple but very core ideas and feelings that we all must experience as people on this planet together. Again, sometimes this is effective, sometimes not. Lines form facets from which color and recognition of abstract imagery produce a feeling. I like to leave the work as a conversation between its physical artifact-ness and the viewers own complex background that each brings to the table differently.
