Since I can remember I have had a pencil or brush in my hand. My early works were not appreciated by the critics as they often involved walls and crayons. I have since moved on to paint and canvas but some of these critics have never forgotten.
I love painting everyday objects and imagined places with the "BIG" clouds I was fascinated with growing up in the Southeast, United States. The focus of my painting is composition, color and brush work.
When I'm not painting I enjoy exploring all the beauty that Oregon has to offer, great food and drinks and spending time with my wife and daughter.
Thanks for taking a look and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
