“El Sueño”, 2018, oil on linen, 97x130cm
I am an American artist from Wisconsin who lives in Barcelona, Spain. I studied painting at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago under Don Southard. After leaving the Midwest, I lived in Greenpoint (Brooklyn, New York City) for many years. In 2006 I moved to Barcelona, where I now live and paint.
I paint life as I experience it externally and internally, from my particular point of view. I want to show humans and non-humans living in harmony with nature and each other. My approach to painting is the same as my approach to life. I try to keep it simple and honest. I try to live and paint from the heart.
