Throughout my eclectic corporate career in graphic design, event management, video operations and software development, I was always an artist while not at work. When I reached the point where my day job was taking too much time away from painting, I mustered the courage to leave that life and am now painting full-time.

I love the process and the never-ending variety of elements and textures that I can layer into a single piece. I’m influenced by dilapidated buildings, and the way time, and nature’s elements alter our surroundings. Rust, peeling paint, and cracked surfaces have a distressed beauty about them that I try to evoke in my work.

Typography plays a significant role in many of my paintings.  Whether English language characters, cursive hand lettering, or foreign alphabets, text is often visible or obscured under layers to be discovered upon further exploration..
