My work consists of oil, or oil and oil pastel, on canvas, sometimes reusing unsatisfying earlier works. Most of my recent pieces developed from a challenge I gave myself to create works that delved much deeper into private images and emotions or memories, but complete them in two days or less. Most of my older works took anywhere from six months to a year, and were sometimes never completed. Several of my recent favorites were created in less than 20 minutes, and are some of the most personal work I've shown publicly.
All of my works have notes of memory, taken from images captured in my life and travels. My works also often contain jokes, or personal conceits, that may never be clear to a casual viewer. However, no matter how personal a work may be, I like my viewers to find what they want in each piece. Building their own stories, and connecting on a personal level that my story may not necessarily reach.
In the end, I hope you enjoy my art in whatever way you wish, and please let me know what you think!
