I generally use very few brushes for my paintings. Most of my paintings are completed using between 2-4 brushes, and that includes my priming brush as well as my finishing brush. I find that a versatile range of techniques can be achieved with even a single brush through exploratory applications. That’s how I developed my own signature style. 

When I find the brushes I do like, I usually buy them in multiples in case they stop making them. Here’s an example of a “before” and “after” of my favorite gesso brush. It’s just about time to retire the one on the right. Once I do retire my brushes, I usually offer them as collector’s items. They tell so many stories and are such critical assets along my journey, it would be a shame to not offer them a life after their services.

So many creations, large and small, for you to choose from. Whether you’re looking for art for your home or office, I have a story to share with you. Message me for inquiries or to request a custom commission. When you support a starving artist, you put paint on the palette and food on the table. This dream would not be what it is today without you.

In my hands: “As The Caged Bird Still Sings.” I’m also trying to smile in the photo but the glare is pretty strong from the showers of light from golden hour.

Featured: Detail shot from “The Day Pandora Set Me Free (Misteriora).” Acrylic on canvas. 60in x 60in. Original and prints available.

I was able to pull some of my biggest and best works off the rack last week for a studio visit. If you’re looking for big art for your home or office, I’ve got some wonderful options for you.

This bright and energetic painting tells the story of Pandora’s Box being opened. As “The Boy In The Box,” it also alludes to escaping and discovering my freedom from the literal and metaphorical boxes of my life. We all have them. With that freedom comes an inherent energy and chaos that must be channeled. Knowledge may be a dangerous weapon, but it’s also a great and beautiful gift that can save the world if handled with both love and care.
