Grandma Millie’s House: “My first home when I came into the world – so many traditions and memories from my mom’s side of the family were anchored and transpired here. My grandma lived her entire life on this same street in Haughville on the westside of Indianapolis. For a long time, I’ve wanted to memorialize this sacred place in some way, and was terrified as I moved through the various stages (see below) of painting it. “

Hailing from Indianapolis, IN, I was trained as an actor, lived a good while in Los Angeles, currently work in technology, and have been drawing and painting for most of my life. Watercolor has become my primary medium and love over the past few years. I currently live in Charlotte, NC with my wife, son, and “the Shmokey Doog.”
