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. This 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 Jack Knife sits atop his trusty steed, Schwarz, as he contemplates his next move. This was a piece that I relied heavily on the process, with little planning beforehand. The result is a highly expressive piece representing the seemingly insurmountable power and might that negativity can have in my life. It is a reminder to rise above it and see it for what it's worth.

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.
