CV/Resume

2104 UPDATE: The majority of my exposure as a painter has been limited to a private sphere/word of mouth due to focusing on private commissions (2009-2013, 80% of work has been created by private commission). This YEAR, in 2014, I am making a professional-creative shift to create a body of work that can be authentically shown in upcoming shows, galleries, and available to purchase in public exhibition venues. If you know of any exhibition spaces that could be a good fit for expressionist abstract landscape work, please let me know!
