Spanning Friday and Saturday (October 7-8), it’s a film and arts festival that seeks to create a safe space for dialogue about faith, gender, and sexuality through art, film, and other media. The team…

The first will be at the Southern Literary Alliance. They are a longstanding literary arts organization in Chattanooga, and it’s a pleasure to partner with them through…

An Abstract Experiment

Recently in the studio, I’ve felt the desire for play. I take my work seriously and have not allowed myself to experiment with my medium in a long time. Until this week. I brewed some coffee and laid out 4 canvases on which I wanted to explore new marks. As I built up each panel,…

Return to the Horizon

As I’ve been working in the studio these past couple weeks, I’ve found myself gravitating back to horizon imagery. The sunrise and sunset have always captivated me. It’s something we see routinely perhaps, but when we take the time to consider it, the scale of the display is astounding. You may know from my statements…

Memories of the Chesapeake

Growing up outside of Baltimore, I frequently went to Annapolis to visit my grandparents’ house on the Chesapeake Bay. I have fond memories of time with family at the water’s edge. When I set out to create a painting that would honor the vivid memories of early mornings along the docks or out in the…

New Studio, New Work

It’s been almost a year since I arrived in Chattanooga and I’ve got lots of good news to share. First and foremost, I’ve signed a lease on a proper studio space in downtown Chattanooga. The studio is in the Chattanooga WorkSpace, on 6th street. It’s a collective of creative-types working on a wide variety of…

Hello Chattanooga

It’s with great excitement and enthusiasm that I get to announce I’m moving my studio with myself and my family to Chattanooga, Tennessee next week. It’s a small but progressive town in south eastern Tennessee, nestled between the lower Appalachians and the Cumberland Plateau. It’s a beautiful area and Chattanooga is a bit of an…

My wife, Victoria, and I have the distinct honor of curating the art selections for an art show at the Level Ground Film Festival in Pasadena California this February. The show, entitled “Sacred Spaces,” will be a two-man show, featuring my own art and work from my close friend, Rafael Cañizares-Yunez. I have been primarily…

Art on Show in Philadelphia at Oxford Mills

A prestigious new redevelopment in Philadelphia is now showing some of my large-scale abstract work. Seawall Development has transformed the old Oxford Mills building—an ex-textile manufacturing facility—into a community-oriented, mixed-used residential and commercial center. The high ceilings and industrial-modern architecture showcase the colorful work beautifully. Even the 80″ tall painting is dwarfed by the building’s…

We had perfect weather, lots of visitors, and a really interesting assortment of fine art, craft items, and other fun whimsy to explore. I love to hear people’s thoughts on my work, and it was really enjoyable to…
