I always try and make paintings with fantasy elements in them. Paintings are a great venue for all of the endless, absurd possibilities of the mind. I enjoy making silly, weird, and even cute paintings. Also, I have loved painting and drawing animals since childhood; they play a big part in my paintings to this day.

I was Born in Baton Rouge Louisiana, but I grew up in Bucks County Pennsylvania.

I have a BFA from Tyler School of Art and an MFA from U.C. Davis

I currently live in Portland Oregon with my family, and extended family.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
