Allegory Nº 1 is part of a new contemporary painting series that is suggestive of natural and landscape elements...creating connections with abstracted hints rather than literal interpretations to tell the unfolding stories. These works are a poetic mixture of emotion, color and composition. Dramatic and romantic--but still playful.

{+} Allegory Nº 1 Is created on heavy weight stretched canvas with professional oil paint. Allegory Nº 1 will be carefully packaged including a pH neutral barrier to protect the surface. The dimensions are 18h x 24w x 1.5d

{+} Sides of the painting cleaned and painted black

{+} Signed with full signature and date on the back of artwork / little "R" signed on bottom front corner

{+} The painting will be pre-wired unless you are planning on having the piece framed. I will ask you your preference upon purchase or feel free to send me a message prior to purchase.

Growing up in a small mid-western town where art was not essential at the time meant I had a late start compared to some of my colleagues. I wasn’t born with a brush in my hand nor did I start drawing when I was 3. However, I was naturally creative with what I had available to me as a kid and spent tremendous amounts of time outdoors imagining, playing and writing. I realize now looking back, a dynamic imagination is one of the footholds in a strong artistic foundation. The 3rd year in college is where my choices fully opened and I suddenly learned I had a talent for painting. I'd like to be clear how fortunate I am - a lot of life events could have happened that didn't. Some of my personality traits helped propel me through this period in my life. I went from zero to 60 in moments and did it while battling progressive severe ulcerative colitis. I was also given a lot of help for which I am eternally grateful. I graduated with a BFA and honors in painting and was accepted into the MFA program at University of Washington, Seattle. I flourished in the studio environment, grew to treasure the freedom professors granted me and loved the diverse cultural events Seattle offered. There was a point during this time I was becoming terribly ill and thought I would have to drop out of grad-school. I refused. I mean it – I absolutely refused. I took 3 months off, had 3 major surgeries and stubbornly insisted on returning as soon as I could. After grad-school, instead of moving to NYC as expected, I relocated to Los Angeles. I was young (recovering from life-altering surgeries), wanted to experience all kinds of worlds, do the unexpected and get to know something completely different. I continued to paint, show in group exhibitions and consistently sold work in South Hollywood. To fund my studio pursuits and ultimately help support my family, I worked as an interface designer that led to a stellar long term career in web development. I continued to make art, but there was always an element of unrest because of the constant divided attention between a demanding career and time in the studio. In 2012, I made one of the best decisions of my life — to return my entire focus to painting, drawing and photography. I have never been happier.
