Oil Painting - Other/Misc.


I have been drawing since I was a little kid. I used to follow my parents around museums and made rudimentary copies of old masters. I used to watch my father draw and I discovered early on the doorway to parallel worlds scrawled into notebooks. Drawing saved me from the worst of teenage angst and served as a way forward when it seemed there was none. After graduate school I quit painting for a few years and focused only on drawing. It was my way of finding my voice lost in a chorus of theory and well meaning advice.

When Iím at my best, my drawings and paintings skate along the crumbly edge between autobiography and the fantastic, the edge between the pleasure and burden of the body and the lightness of dreams and nightmares.

My work is about the erosion of innocence.

My pictures all fall on a narrative continuum although Iím interested in subverting notions of cause and effect

I believe in being badly proficient and I am interested in exploring different styles and iconography....
