| Bio |

Art and music have always been a part of my life. I began playing drums at 9, started my first band at 14, and I still play drums in a band today. Over the years, I taught myself how to play other instruments such as guitar, wrote songs, worked as a studio recording engineer, and I even was an audio engineer and producer for several podcasts.

My musical creativity has always gone hand in hand with my artistic creativity. Over the years, I experimented with pointillism, pyrography, sculpture, screen printing, furniture making, etc. Art and music became the perfect pairing because each one fueled the other.

Years ago, I invested in a modest set of watercolor supplies. I found it to be the most immensely frustrating and unpredictable medium; and yet, I was compelled to figure out how to make something that I could call good art. I actually liked the fact that it was unpredictable, and that nature played a significant role in its creation – gravity, water, air, temperature, time, etc. Painting would eventually become a partnership between me and nature.

It was during a very tragic year for me and my family when I became intensely consumed with painting. It turned out to be meditative, stress-reducing, and a calming force in my life. Once I set my mind free, I could begin painting away some of the harsh realities of life. Subject matter and style were and are secondary to painting. The experience of painting is what I seek.

As someone who gets bored easily, I typically vary my subjects and style. The spontaneity and immediacy of watercolor allows me to quickly produce a finished product of whatever is currently inspiring me. I consciously choose not to spend weeks or months on a piece to avoid overworking it. As for applying a label to my “style”, it floats in and out of the realm of abstract-realism. In the same way that I choose not to listen to the same style of music every day, I choose not to paint in the same style every day. Each painting is its own moment in time.
