ARTIST STATEMENT

Capturing the unrehearsed compositions and offhand smiles between family and friends. Candid and sometimes intimate. The familiarity of it. Vintage. The colors you might find in an old polaroid. Singular, loose marks that would appear to be random. Striving for simplification that borders the abstract. It’s the space and movement between the figures that excites me. The quiet conversations between the obvious loud ones. I paint to create a connection with those that appreciate the absurd and smile when they see their own stories in my paintings.

ART WITH A PURPOSE

My wife and I started a foundation, skinnypigs.org to support organizations we believe in where the leaders are still in the trenches getting the job done. Half of the proceeds from artwork that we sell direct to collectors goes to our foundation and the causes we support.
