I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Having lived in several different regions of Washington I have been inspired by both city and country life. I have always enjoyed painting and have taken many courses throughout my life in different mediums. From the time I was a small boy I’ve looked at life as if I could capture a specific moment in time on canvas. In a way that my work would have a dream like feeling. A thing of the past being brought back to your attention. I focus on a feeling through the brightness or dullness of the paints I use. Traveling is something that inspires me. Culture shock is needed for a change in your views. My views change day to day. My idea of what I would consider amazing art changes as well. Some of my favorite pieces took time to grow on me and have felt so tedious that starting something else seemed like a better idea. In the end the tireless dream of perfecting that piece of artwork, feels almost perfect. Other times I feel simplicity is needed for it to look stunning.
If you are interested in hanging one of my original paintings in your home, office or gallery please contact me.
