The studio has been humming with activity lately, with the prospects of moving to a steady stream of non-commission personal projects on the horizon. I managed to finish my latest installment of Puppet Pal Friends in a little over two weeks, and the experience working on the series gave me that little bit of hand-looseness [...]

I’ve been working like a dog in the studio over the last month and managed to get 5 of the 6 works I've been doing since December completed. It’s been an exhausting haul.

A few weeks back I finished a series of drawings I call "Puppet Pal Friends Be Dues Paying Dudes". These drawings were meant as a reintroduction to abstract drawing and paintings after a year of doing predominately representations works of landscapes and flowers. The title of the series stems from the Puppet Pal Friends cartoon [...]

I though with only a few more days left in the year, that it was a good time to do a year-in-review in art. My friend Michelle Neifert and I began this year saying that it would be the best year ever. It was our mantra, a toast we'd say whenever we got together for [...]

I've been getting some pretty stunning confirmation lately that I am indeed a Libra even though I don't place much stock in astrology. Its mostly because as I read the sign, I've had very mixed and ultimately balanced episodes in my life the last few weeks. My personal life and therefore living accommodations are simultaneously [...]
