I’m an artist based in Houston, TX.
I once created realistic portraits in colored pencil,
but I soon became frustrated with the lack of personal expression those called for.
My work has since transformed into colorful, textured, abstract paintings,
and I often incorporate other media as well.
When working with paint, its diverse viscosities, and often unruly movement,
I explore the push-pull of control and letting go. Learning to focus on the process, while still honoring the product,
has been a healing journey for me to work through intense self-doubt and learn to trust my intuition.
Outside of my creative practice, I am a sign language interpreter.
My wife and daughter mean the world to me, as do our many pets: dogs, chickens, and a cat.
They all get along and look out for each other, and it makes my heart happy.
I’d love to get to know you. Please feel free to reach out about
commissions, opportunities, current work, or just to say hi:
