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 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, Slim Pickens stretches his legs during a stroll in the shadow of Devil's Tower, a towering monolith of rock in eastern Wyoming. His gingerly pace and long stride help him cover some distance while clearing his head. This piece represents the value of taking a walk to clear your mind, a practive I've always enjoyed.

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 that they tell, both tall and true.
