Sculptural Zen Paintings
In short, my father's death expedited my bucket list. I realized in a very personal, very intense sort of way that none of us know how much time we have left, and life could slip away quite unexpectedly at any moment. As a result, I decided to do some serious soul searching, make a list, and channel all of my energy into accomplishing my life's unique purpose with newfound vigor, focus and intensity. Creating a series of sculptural paintings is one of those goals. Peeling back the layers. Seeing deeper into ourselves. Sculptural paintings made with plaster, newspaper and repurposed paint. Each painting is imbued with a mantra for mindfulness.

Commission Painting, Alta View Hospital
My most challenging commission panting to date. How else are we to grow if we remain within the preconceived boundaries we have created for ourselves? We miss 100% of the shots we don’t take.
My studio. My Sanctuary.

A sense of place. Bringing the outride in. An homage to the environment in which they were created. The paintings in this series were made using: iron-rich Utah dirt, salt from The Great Salt Lake, metallic powders, plaster, repurposed paint, and local newspapers. All works available at 15th Street Gallery
I love creating custom paintings that are in complete harmony with a client's space. These commission paintings were made for a gorgeous remodel in one of Salt Lake City's most iconic neighborhoods: The Avenues. Quite often, I have privy to the space (in all it's beautiful chaos) during the construction/remodel process. I love this! I feel such a huge sense of honor and responsibility to get it right, and contribute my particular hand to a client's home sanctuary.
