When I started this page, I had someone else write my bio for me. It seemed more appropriate, less vain. But now, sitting here almost four years later, I feel as though it makes more sense coming from me. After all, this website is an online reflection of me and my art, and distancing the two on doesn't feel genuine.
I've always struggled with the idea of being an "artist." To me, the mere association can sometimes make me cringe. I can't quite explain why, but I think it's rooted in the idea that an artist is somehow unique and different than the rest of us. I've always felt far too normal, with a vast array of interests, to consider myself unique enough to hold such a title. In fact, for years, I was far more comfortable with the "athlete" label than anything else. It was on the field, or court, that I found confidence and grew my social relationships, not with art. The same is true today. While I am less prone to be on the field or court (though I still can hold my own on each), I still find "artist" an intimidating and distorted representation of me. I prefer to think of the art I create as more of a window into how I see the world as opposed to a gallery.
What you'll find on here are snapshots of what I love to do, whether it is photography, drawing or trying to be witty, and though I do not do nearly as much as I wish I did, I enjoy sharing the moments of inspiration I do find and hope you that you can appreciate them as well.
Hope you enjoy the site!
