I like work with paint because it has taught me to be patient, observant, and focused. Big volume paintings (like Rothko) really do speak to me. I think a piece of artwork should have a spiritual element to it, and that element should be evident without having to explain it out loud. Having been raised to love impressionism (my mom being a huge fan of Claude Monet) and science fiction (my dad a huge fan of Star Trek), I see myself constantly trying to hybridize both of these genres into my work. Acrylic paint allows me to quickly layer and cover, and it's been a goal of mine for the past few years to work with larger canvases (my current is "Suspension," a six foot black, grey, and emerald covered canvas hanging in my studio right now). I also have two Physics degrees, my master's being in focused on high-energy Physics; Art and science are very much intertwined, and I love thinking about ways to work a certain scientific element in. School was never my thing, but when I discovered it was easy to study a topic I was really interested in - it was an exciting challenge. Trying to find ways to imbibe mathematics, culture, fantasy, and striking color together to produce unforeseen results in my work is something I always strive for (rarely does a painting end how it started).
Currently I am based out of Austin, TX. I work full time as an engineer but pursue painting and illustration in my off-time at my home studio. When not painting, I love to draw and write (I have many stories I'm hoping to create comics/graphic novels for one day). For all my current work, please visit my artwork page.
Thank you for your interest in me, I hope you learn something about yourself through my work!
