I'm an impasto painter focusing on super luscious, frosting-like paintings created using only palette knives. My work has been exhibited across the mid-Atlantic US with solo exhibits at the Hylton Center, Glen Allen Arts Center, and the Arlington Arts Center.

"The second most item I use most when painting, next to oil paint, is paper towels. Every time after I apply color to the canvas, I wipe my knife totally clean with a paper towels. This ensures that the color remains pure and bright throughout the whole process."
"Two of my favorite artists are Yayoi Kusama and Damien Hirst. I love how they explore color and happiness through polka dots. "I love Damien Hirst. I respect his work a great deal, and I am happy that the polka dots I started using have become a symbol of love and peace around the world with everybody joining hands to use them in this way." --Yayoi Kusama"
