Artist's Statement

I started drawing as a way to emulate my older brother, who is a talented artist in his own right. That taught me an appreciation for light, shape, texture, and most of all movement as profoundly emotive elements of the human experience. Whenever I admire something ā€“ a sculpture, a comic book, a Caravaggio painting ā€“ I get the urge to make it myself. That has led me through a lifetime of work as both a commercial and fine artist, through ink, charcoal, oils, acrylics, and many other forms of mark-making. All of this work represents my interest in art as a way of interpreting and comprehending the world I live in. What motivates the choices I make in every piece is the desire to make things that bring me a sense of awe.

Biographical Sketch

As the only hearing member of a deaf family, American Sign Language is my first language, English my second. I hold an MFA in creative writing from Johns Hopkins University and have studied drawing at the Watts Atelier of the Arts under Jeffrey Watts, Erik and Meadow Gist, and Stan Prokopenko. When Iā€™m not painting, I spend time with my wife and two children, write poetry, and work as a graphic designer, editor, and art director.
