About

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

Creating paintings with personal narratives - sometimes ambiguous - that present themselves as universal emotional artifacts is a significant motivator for creating my work. I am drawn to abstracted representational works with decisive mark making and 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.
