Venice, Ca. 
I am interested in the complex nature of relationships between a particular medium and the image it communicates. In my painting practice this has manifest through fore grounding the craft of paint making. The process of mining my own pigment sources including Iron oxides, copper oxides, calcium carbonates and Carbon has taken me to locations such as France, Peru, Brazil, North Africa and my hometown of Ventura California. The reconstitution of these site-specific minerals into a painting medium is one of the ways in which I communicate ideas about history, nature, and the craft involved in my own artistic production.
