early drawings and paintings
These are very early drawings and paintings. Even early on in my schooling I was drawn to the ideas of the portrait and storytelling.

"44 Days" was an experiment I did where I would spend the first two hours in my studio painting a skull that I rotated daily for forty four days. In college I spent an entire semester just painting configurations of my hand on a very large canvas. People would always ask me what it meant to have a canvas full of disembodied hands and I would reply, "it means that I'm learning how to paint".

"The Dinner Party" was a still life that has definite hints of a David Lynch film. A kind of mystery that has clues in it but not enough to resolve it with any sense of satisfaction, but instead just ending up with more questions.

In "So What are You Hiding" I wanted to play with ideas of feminizing masculinity, by countering the facial hair and the suit with something as simple and effective as pig tales and bows. The isolating posture and the puzzling expression play into the masculine/feminine duality by asking whether or not this is a serious or humorous portrait, a guy with girly hair or a girl in guys clothing.

"Still Life" was another early painting that has a mystery in its shadows.
