Lost Opportunity, Misdirected Effort:
I come to painting with an interested in life, people, and the ways they interact, especially the more dark, humorous and what many might characterize as socially unacceptable behavior.  I'm drawn to the “low-brow”, uncultivated, unintellectual sides of life with a snarky fascination by the stupid choices people make and the unpredictable circumstances they find themselves in. I'm charmed by the absurd, campy, and perverse parts of life.  I want to know what’s happening behind the "curtain", the backstory, and not intended to be seen by others.
The subject matter of my work centers on reoccurring themes of humor, misfortune, desire, disappointment, deviance, and stupidity.
The work is oil on canvas, mostly small in size and generally done quickly with little concern for accurate rendering and mostly in thick, chunky paint.
