About

 

Welcome to my studio. I'm located here on the California Coast in a quiet fog town called Pacific Grove. This is where I make art that I enjoy making, even if I don't always know why that's the case.  If you want to know what my process looks like, it usually involves three stages.

The first is I keep my eyes open to the possibilities, omens, or signals from the ether. They usual appear as potential leads, curiosities or cool stuff I think are fun. I filter them through my own preferences, goals, and emotions until I have come upon an outcome I hope to realize. A vision!

The second stage is much more reasonable. I organize my days and cater to my art so that I can spend as much time in my studio while honoring my duties to my day job, to my health, to my friends, family and other pursuits. I plan ahead so as to outmaneuver distractions and become as efficient as possible to spend quality time with my paints and make my idea come to life. I say no to a lot of outside sources and say yes to my art. I make it happen! 

The third stage is all about sharing my craft. I photograph my work, share work in progresses, document the arc of a painting through time-lapses and videos, and I discuss my thoughts and feelings regarding being an emerging artist. I tend to post this content on my Instagram, or on my youtube channel. I also do outreach to connect with other artists, photographers, writers, entrepreneurs, chefs, wood workers, architects, artisans--creatives who focus their attention and take their time seriously. This keeps me grounded and motivated. I market online to spread the word and get feedback which encourages me to strive for improvement and grow my network.

I love what I do.
