As a boy, I found confidence and story in drawing and rendering. Happily lost in comics and graphic novels, I sketched everywhere. As an art student, I drew for a catchy headline immersed in Abstract Expressionism and Neo-Abstract Expressionism. With fatherhood’s reaction, my landscapes became more grounded/studied and color more local. Now mid-game, I paint for the twain, process and subject. With that, the canvas and pigment, hue and color field, I look to suggest and refute rocks, sea and sky; the physicality of the paint and the passion of the scape steamroll my work forward.
