STATEMENT/BIO



 Exploring both abstraction and representation in my work, I combine elements of rendering and detail along with bold, flat gestural painting. In combining these two approaches, I feel I am participating simultaneously in both a traditional approach to painting and a contemporary one. I'm interested in seeking out and defining elements of spontaneous brushwork or mark-making, into hints of something recognizable or seemingly recognizable in the aims of creating a sort of abstracted reality. I've always been equally fascinated with the world of animation and cartoons, as well as the history of painting and art in general. I aim to combine elements of each together, invoking a playful, lighter side, paired with depth, mood and emotion.

  I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida and attended Douglas Anderson School of the Arts high school from 1989-1993. Graduating with a BFA in painting from the Atlanta College of Art in 2001, I also attended the New York Studio Residency Program in New York City for a semester during that time. From 2003 until 2011, I lived in Brooklyn, NY, participated in various group shows and worked as an assistant to artist Jeff Koons. In March 2011, my wife and I returned to Atlanta, where I'm currently living and working.
