I received my BFA in painting at the Massachusetts College of Art in 1997. After working for many years as an art director and interactive designer, I now paint almost full time thanks in great part to the success I've found selling work online.

Despite all the suburban scenes in my mixed media paintings, I was actually raised by artists deep in the woods of NH and currently live and work in a small, but sunny apartment with my family. I dream of owning our own house someday, but for now I make paintings of them and imagine the lives of those who call these places “home”. I suspect it's not always what it appears to be.

By distilling these everyday scenes, I allow the encroaching shadows and awkward scale or placement that already exist to tell (what I imagine) is a truer story.
