I am an oil painter working in Skowhegan, ME.  I received a BA in Art from the University of Maine at Augusta in 2011 with a concentration in drawing.  

 

Each painting is a one of a kind original (no prints) of my own design and execution.  My subject matter ranges from heavy machinery and architecture to florals, plein air work and still lifes.  Although I do work from photographs occasionally, the vast majority of my work is done from direct observation whether it be in the field (plein air) or in the studio.  

 

I am interested in the formal aspects of representational painting ie. composition/color/value/texture etc. but focus mostly on finding abstract yet implicit shapes and trying to find ways to simplify my subjects.
