Artist’s Statement
To seek a state of bliss is to seek paradise. As humans, we are all inherently imperfect. We can start off with good intentions, but just by nature of being human, we get in our own way. We are perfectly flawed. Our adaptation to the unforeseen is what is beautiful and moving.

About the Artist
I work to sustain that first glimpse of an image through the process of producing a painting. The many layers of paint are used to first break down an image, then to rebuild it. The result is somewhere between representation and abstraction: when a painting expresses what I cannot with words. I can communicate in a language of my own making.

I started painting as a way to record and study places. This evolved naturally from my work as an architect. My paintings now strive to capture that fleeting image and emotion of a place or person. My version of the truth.

I attended the University of Michigan where I received a Bachelor and Master of Architecture and first started painting. I currently live and work in San Francisco.
