Artist Statement

“What are you doing here, wasting your talent!?”  This is the response I have always received from co-workers at my ‘real’ jobs when they see examples of my artwork, and hence, the origin of the “Wasted Talent Studio” name. 


My painting technique is a direct and aggressive application that provides texture, movement, and narrative.  Whether my subject is a shotgun house, a food still life, a street parade, or a coastline sunset, I want my paintings to draw viewers into the scene while sparking memories and emotions.  My goal to preserve moments and places before they “waste” away.
