On July 28th I will be showing a selection of works made during my first year in Los Angeles. These work examine the cultural and aesthetic qualities of the city through the perspective of an outsider. The many small grocery stores found in Los Angeles served as a catalyst for this body of work, providing both found imagery and design elements for the paintings. The different commodities found in these stores and their cultural connections are an example of how we identify certain goods with different groups of people and parts of the world.

I'm Happy to Announce that one your of Paintings was selected to be in the 2016 Newport Annual Members' Juried Exhibition.

I've just returned to Rhode Island from traveling through Southeast Asia, Alaska, Vancouver, and California. I've posted some photos and small works I made on the road to my "Sketchbook" page.
