I love art and drafting… building models…. all things technical and creative. This is what really inspired me as a young man. My dream was to design and build rollercoasters and I accomplished that, but I am truly free when I paint.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Growing up in Central Kentucky I dreamed of designing and building roller coasters. I loved art and drafting… building models…. all things technical and creative. This is what really inspired me as a young man. My dream was to design and build rollercoasters. After high school, I joined the military in order to fund my education. My time in the service helped me develop my interpersonal and technical skills. After returning to Kentucky for college, I landed a job with a roller coaster manufacturer in PA where I helped design and build 17 roller coasters around the world. During this time I rediscovered that I love to paint. It was my way of exiting the world of exactness that is everything a roller coaster needs to be. It was my way to release the interworking of the mind’s eye and letting it flow out with no restrictive bounds. I am truly free when I paint. I love to paint to music. It seems to be the door to the mood of the day. It’s funny to me how Nine Inch Nails can sometimes produce a beautiful tree. The music does steer the piece a lot of times. If I’m commissioned to paint for someone I always ask for a play list of their favorite music. It’s that personal touch that truly makes it their piece theirs.
