Oil Painting

​I like to paint. For me, the act of painting provides an experience of heightened clarity, connectedness, awareness and awe. From abstract expressionism to ink drawings by zen priests; from Matisse to Giotto to very early cave paintings — I find inspiration in varied sources.
I’ve studied at the University of Michigan School of Art (where I got my BFA), the School of Visual Arts, New York City; attended workshops at the College of Creative Studies, Detroit, the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center and at Kyoto Seika University, Japan. I am proud to have won grand prize at the Michigan Fine Arts Competition in 2011.
