My emotions are my subject. Forget structure, planning; unleash raw creativity, feelings. This style is bold, bright, full of color, free and fluid. Contrast this style with my career in technology: binary, organized, exact to millionths of a degree. Painting is my refuge and escape.
This year, I was one of five artists accepted into the prestigious Escapist Mentorship Program founded by acclaimed artist John Ross Palmer. It’s been an amazing and life-changing experience for me as an artist and has pushed me in new and exciting directions. For instance, I recently embarked on a journey across the desert southwest and used the sights, sounds and experiences from that journey to create a new body of work.
This represents a new and exciting direction for me as I explore using direct inspiration to influence my style without constraining it.
