About

I am a representational oil painter located in Chattanooga, TN USA.

My paintings often have personal narratives, sometimes ambiguous, and tend to reveal themselves as universal emotional artifacts. This has been a significant motivator for my recent work. I appreciate impressionistic or abstracted representational works with decisive mark marking, where the peripherals and “the space in-between” are suggested not described.

I began painting with oils full time in 2014, and have a background in front-end web development. I was employed as a wide-area network engineer for NASA upon graduation from university.
