  • "You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."

  • Letting yourself go to a place of complete vulnerability isn’t easy. This cow was painting in hopes of experiencing just a small taste of that vulnerability.

  • I painted this golden eagle in a different style many months before I claim to present you with this finished piece. I was never happy with it. At last, I decided what it needed was to be free. So, out came the oil paint, and using my fingers and palette knives, I felt my way through this beautiful golden eagle soaring through the sky. This is the original painting, created using oil paint on canvas. It measures 30x15in. Please contact me if you have any questions about purchasing this original painting.
  • I started this painting with the hopes of showing a father lion and his cub. I painted the two several times, and never felt good about it. The last time, I was pleased and felt like moving on to something new. But, I kept looking at it with a sense of despair and unfulfillment. So, I decided to put it back up on the easel. After starring at this painting for weeks, I suddenly had this crazy, surreal feeling come over me. I wasn't looking at a father and cub, I was looking at myself. I started to tear up. I new then exactly what I needed to do. The grown lion needed to go. I loaded my hands with titanium white, and started to "erase" him. I felt sad, scared, and tearful. Not because I was losing all the hard work i put in, but because I new this painting was about me. I couldn't keep trying to make him perfect. I needed to let that go. And what's left, is a cub, who only has an aura of his past remaining.
    When I look at this piece now, I don't see a blank canvas and lion cub. I see myself, what I want to leave behind, and what possibility there is moving forward.
    This is the original painting, created using oil paint on canvas. It measures 36x36in. Please contact me if you have any questions about purchasing this original painting.

  • The Tiger, an animal that is so fierce and strong, yet so vulnerable and poetic at the same time. I see his gaze and wonder what he is looking at or contemplating. But I know he's completely in the moment. How ironic that's something I experienced while bringing him to life. Something I haven't experienced while painting before. This is the original painting, created using oil paint on canvas. It measures 20x24in. Please contact me if you have any questions about purchasing this original painting.
