My official training in art started at Miami University (Oxford OH). After graduating in 98' with a BFA in painting I moved to Minneapolis, with my wife Jennifer, to serve a three year apprenticeship at The Atelier School of Fine Arts. Over the past eight years I have moved from oil painting to pastels then back to oils again, all the while trying not to fall into the mode of being a "Figurative Painter", a "Still Life Painter", or a "Landscape Painter." For these past years I have been working towards the goal of simply being A Painter of what I see, which sometimes is right in front of my eyes, and other times in the back of my head. Either way I try to represent a small flicker of a moment, that sometimes may have a sly or humorous meaning, and other times it may just be one of those moments that causes us to take a momentary pause in a life that is forever wanting us not to.
