Some words about My Visual art

I never meant to be a painter, but I just kept painting.  I took a few painting and drawing classes in college, and then one day on a whim I signed up for an art show at my place of work, Bixby's Cafe, which forced me to create with a deadline. For that first show, I ended up painting a dozen or so works in less than three weeks based off of drawings that I did when I worked overnights at a mental health facility. I kept signing up for art shows intermittently through the years and now I paint much more regularly than ever before (you can check out current work on instagram). I consider painting to be a hobby but I am also lucky enough to consider it my day job (it’s a great day job!).

I have only recently begun to seriously embrace humor and playfulness (so serious indeed) in my work. I am primarily a musician and songwriter, so this painting thing - it better be fun, at least most of the time. Otherwise I've decided I'm just not going to do it. 

These are 5 of 8 sketch collages I made for a show at Prove Gallery - "Polarized" - alongside fellow artists Ryan Lemahieu, Brian Ring, Cody Paulson, Tommy Kronquist, & Jay Whitcomb in January of 2014.
