Telling stories through art.

My enduring passion has always been identity topics, either in my personal practice or through my public art career. I strongly believe that understanding the individuality of a subject or the uniqueness of a place results in the most meaningful art solutions.

In my personal practice I enjoy working in series: a painting-a-day for a year, 52 weekly self portraits, and portraits of the 12 Apostles reimagined in present day settings using my friends as models. Working in this way allows me to approach a subject from a variety of perspectives and communicate the results of my observations in more nuanced, purposeful and impactful ways. This aesthetic combines an experimental approach to materials with a commitment to observation as a threshold for making art.

My art uses the power of the visual image to tell stories, communicate beauty and celebrate creation.
