I Thought I Heard a Stranger

Here are some paintings from my recent show. These paintings were drawn from my home back in Marine City MI, Memories Manor of St. Clair MI, and The Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, Grand Rapids MI

Also I'm in the process of redesigning my website and updating some of my painting series.

My recently titled piece Like Sunlight Causes Darkness to Go will be on display for Artpeers at Brick Road Pizza.

Along with that I have 2 other shows coming up in the next few months: a solo show at Bethlehem Lutheran Church (250 Commerce Ave SW # 100, Grand Rapids, MI), this show will feature all recent and new work. I also have a exhibit at Central Michigan University's Baber Room with a fellow GVSU alum, Caitlin Freeman, who we had our senior thesis show together and will be reshowing the body of work.

what ive been up to lately

so i took some time off for the whole art thing but am finally getting back into the swing of things. i started off by making something off the wall for me, a sculpture of sorts. it is also for sale via etsy.

i also returned to my painting a little rocky at first but all in all it turned out well. still working on a title tho.

and lastly, i have begun work on a piece i intend to enter into artprize, titled The Archetypes of the Unconscious. its larger than anything ive done in the past, but im up for the challenge. when all is said and done it will be a 100" x 76". here is my artprize profile which includes the photo reference i'll be using as well as what i know about the piece thus far.

it was hard to give a description about something when it isnt completed, and the only time ive really spent with it is on a computer screen or on a small printout. my understanding of the piece may change as it progresses and the relationship changes. i will post updates and my progress as it the days continue.

first publishing

A step in the right direction. The first in hopefully many to come. My piece "There are weapons that are simply thoughts" will be in the current issue of Creative Quarterly. As of right now, they are found in select bookstores, so if your nearest one doesn't have it, request it or order it online.
