I started painting grackles because they were invading in my backyard. I tried everything to make the pests stop eating my dogs' food and pooping on the deck. So I embraced them through oil painting. Call it karma, they left my backyard...temporarily. I paint things that are specific to Austin area and only on wood panels I build myself. I spend just as much time in my wood shop as my studio. I landed in east Austin in 2005 from Boston with a BFA from James Madison University in Virginia.
