Contemporary artists you should dig right now.
Although the opening happened a while ago, I thought I would recap my solo show with BoxHeart Gallery called "Soft Sugars" of all my little goopy colorful paintings. It was a steady stream of people throughout the run of the show even up until the last day, and it was really cool to field so… Continue reading Soft Sugars Opening in Pittsburgh

I had to work with photos that I did not take myself, which always poses a challenge, especially when an iPhone is used and distorts the shape of the face.

A lot of bits and pieces in this painting were created in 3D modeling software (which I am still getting the hang of) and… Continue reading New Painting: Equinox
My solo exhibition "Soft Sugars" is now available via Artsy and BoxHeart Gallery in Pittsburgh. The show is up until August 23rd. I made a little video talking about my painting process and how the whole thing keeps evolving. https://youtu.be/MV57VG1y7OA As you will be able to tell, I kind of gave up trying to paint… Continue reading How My Paintings Continue to Evolve
