Artist Statement I have had a lot of jobs. Really, a lot - from the theatrical; craft artisan, set painting, scenic artist, dresser,
costumer, stage and production manager, even a turn through the wonderful world of Disney as a show
artisan in L.A. and Hong Kong - to the classic artist's "trench" job of bartending. Even as a kid, I had a
paper route, and considered a successful work day when I never had to leave the seat of my bike to deliver a
paper. Ah, the perfect throw. So why are you reading my bio on an artist's page? I wish I knew. I wish I
understood why I see art in everything and everyone, and why I am compelled to put what I see on a flat
surface. My family wondered the same thing and yet here I am.

What I put on these flat surfaces comes directly from what I feel and observe, or have felt and observed as I
wandered through all of these diverse work spaces. Moments that capture my interest, or sometimes my
irritation, end up depicted in full color. It is color that I see when I have a reaction to life; it is color that I
see when I observe a touching or funny moment while out with my friends.

When asked "what are my influences?" In general, my answer would be you. The people that I have met
and will meet whether on the job or at the local coffee shop. My interactions with friends, and observations
of life in general follows me into my studio.

Specifically, the artists that have drawn my attention are Frieda Kahlo, Da Vinci, and Sir Lawrence
Alma-Tadema. Why? Frieda Kahlo for her raw depictions, Da Vinci for his prolific and mind boggling
diversity (one might even say I modeled my work life after his art), and the sounds that I hear when I look
at the works of Sir Alma-Tadema.

So, I thank you for your continued influence on my work, and hope that you enjoy, or are at least intrigued
and entertained by what ends up on my flat surfaces. Cheers!
