I work as a full-time artist and live both in San Francisco, California, and in Melbourne, Australia. My artwork has been offered by Cain Schulte Contemporary Art in Union Square, San Francisco, by Reaves Gallery in Chelsea, New York, by Art Equity, in Sydney, Australia and by Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio.

My paintings explore the contemporary self and its evolving sense of identity.  I investigate the influences of pop-culture, marketing, and news media on social and individual motivation and behavior, and I question the plausibility of the authentic individual.  Each painting is the result of a labor intensive process comprised of scavenging and collecting newspapers and media materials to use as collage backgrounds that form suggestive narratives for the over-laying figurative images I paint on top.  Once the collage is created, the drawing and painting begins, and finally the piece is sealed in a thick coating of epoxy resin.  In early 2011, my series "Upload," based on Great Britain's Machin Head stamp, was exhibited at the Melbourne Affordable Art Fair and enjoyed a sold-out show.  My latest series, "Comic Relief," is a small series inspired by the TinTin comic and addresses a society's inclination to ignore the underlying social psychological patterns and behavior that threaten to destroy it.

In November of  2014, two year's of work, 20 paintings, will be on exhibit in a solo show at Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio.
