Tall Tales tell the stories of my life thus far: the experiences, dreams, fears and aspirations that I've collected in my 33 years of adventure. The lanky-limbed characters spin a collective yarn, uniting the viewer and artist in an unfolding tale of an artist's life.

The series puts an introspective and contemporary twist on western art. I create fictional characters and root them in the nonfiction narrative of my life, bridging the divide between reality and my imagination. The mixed media paintings feature four characters that represent different aspects of my identity: Slim Pickens, Bluebeard, Jack Knife and The Lady. Read more about the series >

In this piece, Bluebeard floats through a desert landscape, a ghostly vestige free from the constraints of this physical world. This piece demonstrates how ideas and creative inspiration seem to appear out of thin air, as if they've been floating through the ether for millennia in search of a creative hand to grasp at them and try to express them in some way.

Tall Tales is both a contemporary spin on western imagery and a glimpse into the fiber of my being. These energetic mixed media paintings are full of life and sure to inspire conversations about the tales they tell, both tall and true.
