It’s hard to believe that when 2020 began I was still painting planets paintings and the Higg(ins) Boson series and imagining how I would put those works out there in the world. I had just finished a very successful show at the Bethlehem House Gallery and was looking forward to a year of commissions, gallery [...]

It goes without saying for most that 2020 was a difficult year filled with uncomfortable transitions and filled with personal and national tragedies.

I turn 44 on the 25th and when one reaches such a middle-mid-life point there’s naturally a period of reflection that takes place. I can remember when I was 13 years old and how I desperately wanted to be this age in my life. The 40’s back then meant freedom and opportunity. I can’t say [...]

Last week I was finishing up a mural project with my buddy Darrell when during our fabulously catered lunch break our conversation turned to the idiosyncrasies of language, particularly greetings between acquaintances. “Hi how are you doing?”, rarely is a genuine question. And the indifference can leave a person feeling like they can’t ever truly [...]
