About

Getting to the Root of Things

As a kid growing up in an Ohio suburb, I so longed to see the world I would spin the teacher's globe and pretend I had been born in some exotic location like Chad, Egypt, or Sweden. After college, I finally became the globetrotter I so wished to be, living and studying in the Middle East and traveling throughout Europe. My path eventually led me to a job in Washington and a life of D.C. traffic, deadlines, and the gray walls of my cubicle.

Feeling trapped once again in life, I had to ask, is this all there is? That's when I took the plunge into this creative life.

I am now a full-time professional artist. My artistic influences range from Flemish and Dutch still life painters to the abstract expressionist painters to Basquiat. I love to experiment with different mediums and I allow the image itself to choose the means of communication. My purpose is to get to the core and essence of life through my creative work.

... Hence the name, "Pith and Root."

My work has been featured on:

The Neo-Trad
The Bright Side Project
Design*Sponge
The Jealous Curator
Artsy Forager
Buy Some Damn Art

Currently, I offer a limited number of photographic reproductions and cards and postcards featuring my work. I produced these products with the help of Roehricht Printing and Design in Ramstein-Miesenbach, Germany and Moo, a U.S.-based company with online printing tools.
