So it's been awhile. A long while. Life happened, changes were made, and I feel I've come a long way. My artwork has changed direction, almost on it's own. I started to put down the paint and camera and started making jewelry more and then suddenly decided that I really wanted to pursue my passion in taxidermy. (This has alarmed family members and confused friends but is a great party topic when trying to scare off strangers).

I'd like to update more often and document my adventures and misadventures in taxidermy, as well as my other art and life in general. So many interesting things are happening in my life right now that I've love to share.

Sideshow Freaks and Modern Saints

Hello everyone,
I just started a painting involving modern saints, I might post some works in progress photos soon. I'm on a sideshow kick tonight, I've been reading about the Fiji Mermaid and other sideshow hoaxes. It's been a subject of fascination for me since childhood and I've been doing a lot of sketches based on it. Maybe it will end up in one of my paintings. Enjoy:

Finally, a (sort of) Update!

I know, I really suck at updating. I will post some works in progress soon, really. I'll also be posting information about the February 18th opening of the Art of Brian Sproul show at the Reese Bullen Gallery. I get to be a part of putting this show together and it's really an honor to work so closely with his artwork.
That's it for now. Here's my inspiration for the night:

Goodnight, hope I didn't give you nightmares.
