Web Update Coming Soon


Darker/Blacker (2017) acrylic paint and charcoal on canvas, 32in x 34in

In 2016, I took a break from exhibiting my work and intentionally focused on making better paintings. I have a body of work that will be uploaded to this website in the coming month(s) but until then, you can see a small portion of the Darker/Blacker Phase on ArtSlant.

New work

I have been in the studio quite a bit this month working on new paintings on both canvas and paper. Trying to shift the color palette to a more muted, even darker territory. Follow me on Instagram for more!

I have been working towards finishing a lot of new paintings for the show at The Geisel Gallery in August. As of this week they are all done! Somewhere in the neighborhood of 27 paintings will be included. This is the most comprehensive exhibition I have had. Most of the paintings are from 2015-2014 with a few from 2013.
