"My true passion and self-expression comes from painting"
My early passion for drawing and painting led me to pursue the study of art at Columbia College in Chicago. I received a BFA with honors in 1993 and started my professional career as an illustrator and graphic designer; however, my true passion and self-expression comes from painting and I’ve had the great fortune to pursue a career as a fine artist.
For me, painting is a way to explore the relationships between various color harmonies and surface textures and allows me an opportunity to experiment with spontaneity and chance. It is also a way for me to develop my own unique artistic voice.
The medium I primarily paint with is acrylics. The pure pigment allows me to translate my vision with intense and dramatic colors. I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture a subject’s likeness while intensifying beauty through the use of bold and vibrant colors. With the use of large brushes, trowels, and pallet knives I am able to create texture and add movement to the painting, heightening the emotional experience for the viewer.
In the summer of 2017 after having spent many years honing my skill and taking advantage of the opportunities to market my craft in the great city of Chicago, I moved to the beautiful state of Michigan with my wife Kelly and children, Kaelyn and Zachary, where I continue to evolve and explore my passion for the arts.
