I create hard edge abstract paintings that juxtapose Minimalism and Maximalism - many of the geometric shapes that I paint reference Minimalism, but my palette makes my work look just as “at home” in a Maximalist setting. I love making both figurative and abstract work; both styles nod to the past and speak to the future in a way that is all their own.
I majored in Studio Art and Art History at The College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, where the majority of my work was focused around painting and printmaking. I moved to New York in 2009, and I am inspired by the seemingly limitless marriages of form, texture, and color that I see here daily.
I work with designers, art consultants, and collectors, creating paintings for both residential and commercial settings. My work complements luxurious homes designed by some of the country's most renowned designers, including Ashe Leandro and Kelly Hurliman, and it can also be found in commercial spaces. Much of 2020-2021 was spent creating work for three Kimpton Hotel properties; each of the 144 rooms at the Kimpton Bannekar (opening date June, 2021), located at DuPont Circle in Washington DC feature original paintings that I created for the space and/or prints made from them. It can also be found in the lobby of the new Kimpton Alton (opening date May, 2021) in the heart of San Francisco, as well as an unbranded Kimpton property in Dallas, Texas (opening November, 2021).
The majority of my work is commissioned, and I am always happy to create renderings for potential clients before starting on a full size painting for them so that they know at the beginning of the process that the piece will look like in their space. The end result is a bespoke painting that seamlessly integrates into his or her home or business. Please let me know if I can be of help. If you are interested in a piece that has been sold, I'll be happy to create something similar for you in the size and color palette that will best suit your home or business.
