I am a painter working and living in Bismarck, North Dakota. Originally from southern Florida. I spent half of my life in Florida and the other half in Pennsylvania with a couple other east coast states in between. I am greatly influenced by shape and color with a special interest in water, pools to be specific, the mountains, thick forests of trees and the beach. I owe all of this to the places I grew up.
I received my BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. A lot of my interest in color meaning can be related back to a combination of my favorite courses in psychology, philosophy and 2-D design.
My work varies but is a combination of fauvism, pop art, and a hint at impressionism. I love working with color and using it as a description and feeling. I like to pixelate images when I look at them and paint the shapes I see in a kind of conversation between colors.
My acrylic animals are an attempt to tell of an animal's personality and not just their mug shot. Watercolors are more of doodles from thoughts and ideas that I enjoy sharing as reproductions. I like to create to allow everyone a little piece of something sweet to enjoy.
I'm always open to ideas for new images and commissions. My time is limited, but I try to give an accurate time frame to complete your request!
