A brief statement : Due to a serious injury I sustained in 2019, a move, and a new business venture I unwittingly entered into the first ever hiatus of making paintings in my life. The last few years have been those of self reflection and a lot of hard work. I found myself running a small crew of artists, leading a band, and making music for the first time since college. It's been the perfect segue for quite a bit of poetry, experimental sound, and video. Yet with this past break over Christmas and thoughts of opening a gallery as a way to reinsert myself into the art world, I've realized that my true love is and has always been Painting. Here at the very beginning of 2024, I am exhilarated to be back in the studio, and am aiming to start showing and selling work full time again as soon as possible. I am still in the beginning phases of making new works but already there is a trend to investigate neurodivergence, struggles with addiction and substance abuse and how technology relates to the zeitgeist.
Thank you so much for your interest.
