We don’t arrive, we growDigital photograph1852 x 1852 pixels2014
All my photographs are in black and white. There is something strong and profound about black and white, its soulful and pure. I like to think our internal light is the only vibrant color.

Glimmer Fouroil on linen28” x 22”2014
This selection of paintings and drawings are portraits of characters in my ongoing myths. One by one I’m revealing them, stripped down and removed from their surroundings that contain myriad histories and meanings. This gave me a chance to further explore and connect with them as characters for future paintings that will be elaborate in setting and detail as well as epic in scale. This is by no means the full cast of characters but they are certainly some of my favorite.
