"Everything I have ever made is a reflection of the supreme sense of wonder I feel when confronted with the natural world. It is an endless reservoir of possibility. I want my voice to highlight the hidden messages that sometimes get left behind in a society so tumultuous and beautiful and terrible and loud. We have a lot to learn from the plants and animals that we share this planet with. I want to explore these messages…

"My artwork takes me on several different journeys. When painting a landscape I often close my eyes and try to re-create a scene in my head. Sometimes they are from recent memory, but often from the distant past. Other times I refer back to the trusted sketchbook, for reference, and more recently I have started to take photographs to work from. When painting abstracts in oils I just take it one step at a time and often change…

"My work largely deals with current social issues and the variety of ways our backgrounds and experiences change how we view these.

I translate numerical data regarding temperature and rainfall into a visual language of grids and colors. In this way, I am questioning the ways in which meteorological data is traditionally represented, in an attempt to leave the viewer with a more visceral and non-verbal experience of these…

I have given myself one year to have 100 studio visitors come through the studio. This challenge started back at the beginning of March, I had this idea to actively encourage studio visits from friends, patrons or anyone interested in my work. My invitation was pretty open!

Reality TV vs. Actual Art World

Kymia Nawabi crying


Kymia Nawabi's statements from her recent interview were endearing and funny in their honesty. I find artists are sometimes not willing to express the reality of their situation. They obscure their struggles and focus on their achievements. This leads to assumptions by their peers and public.  I recently read this interview from Hyperallergic with Kymia Nawabi who won the prize during the second season of the reality TV show Work…
