Ready to Hang
A deconstructed forest of lush greens and foliage is breaking apart against a delicate balance of blues, lavenders, greys and a cascade of thick palette knife marks. This serene composition is filled with the joys of the forest, bright summer skies and a cool, refreshing ground. Painted in oils on birch board cradled to 1.5 inches (sides painted black), this painting is lightweight and strong, and can even hang on a thumbtack!
My paintings are explorations of color relationships and space through abstracted landscapes. Meant to calm and even inspire, I believe that art should be beautiful and it is something that I strive for in my work. I constantly try to find color combinations matched with a thick paint application to create an exciting painting surface that results in something more than just an image, but a visual experience.
Born in Southern California, I now live with my wife in the Kansas City area. I have painted for over 15 years, showing in a variety of alternative spaces throughout the Midwest and Texas. I often work on commissions and collaborate with designers to produce specialized works for a variety of clients throughout Kansas City.
