I am a representational oil painter located in Chattanooga, TN USA.
To be still in the falling pain, a poetic phrase I misheard, conjures images of emotional, personal narratives and best describes my recent work.
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 but shortly resigned from my position to race motorcycles at club-level while living in Atlanta, GA. It was in Atlanta that I taught myself web design and development and continued in this field until 2013. The death of my uncle and a duty of care to an aging and morbid family member brought me to the canvas full time in 2014, where I began exploring personal narratives in my paintings that celebrate the ephemerality of relationships.
