My Bio
Location: Southern California

I paint figures underwater, immersing my subjects in their surroundings. A person’s reflection in water is a constantly changing self, a distorted image with many sides. Near the surface, the familiar blends into the unknown. Color and shape break down. Things that seem separate become entwined.

Water is the source of life, bodily and spiritual renewal. It represents both life and death, existing in the same place as a continuation. It is the place of origins, and a place inside ourselves where we go to find peace. Making up most of the Earth and most of our bodies, it is the connectedness of things.

I occupy the world below the surface, the subconscious, a place of intuition and dreams. The vague ideas and emotions that don’t quite fit into words. I marvel at the world above the surface, past the limits of our perception. The unseen and unexplained, mysteries beyond our human reach. Reality is deep and complex. The more we delve and search, the more astounding layers we find. Yet in supreme chaos I see universal order. From galaxies to subatomic particles, the curve of a leaf and the human brain.

I prefer the organic to the mechanized, natural to manmade, timeless to modern. In nature, I see the essence of truth and beauty. As people disconnect from nature, they lose a vital understanding. We become preoccupied with the mundane, obsessed with tiny details of our daily lives, restless and struggling for meaning. Forgetting how small we are and how little we control. How strange it is to even exist.

Second DD!

0 min read
Oh hey, I got another DD and didn't notice until today!! Thanks everyone! All your comments really encourage me to keep it up. This is the first painting I've finished in a year, since getting my degree. I've had some difficulties getting in the way of my work, and it feels great to have a new painting to show. I actually still want to post a better photo of it. Considering how much time I actually worked on this one, I think I'm progressing faster than before. I'm surprised so many people mistook it for a photo! That level of realism isn't really my intention, but I guess I'm becoming more detailed and subtle. This painting is still more col
