"This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:22

Artist's Statement

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!
