To create my art, I work in the classical tradition of deliberatively building up oil paint in multiple layers. This method produces a solidity and polish to the surface of the final painting, while the varying opacity between layers can create interesting effects. I prefer painting on wood panels, as opposed to canvas, because I feel that the rigid support allows me better control of the medium.
Artistically, I have been influenced by classical Greek and Roman art, Renaissance art, Neoclassicism, and Surrealism.
Where I’ve Been
Born and raised in colorful Colorado, I went on to graduate from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York where I studied illustration and anatomy.
