Passion

Painting started in high school.  Typically, it would happen within art class or at home - never with or in front of others.  My first live painting experience was at a small CAVA public art show in Fort Collins, CO.  There were several artists set up, all in flow within their own expression painting to a local dj.  So comfortable in their own rights, everyone sharing their magic with the world.  I was nervous, but I fell in love.  

The experiences since the first have ultimately changed me.  I am amazed by what each painting teaches me as well as the viewer.  Every one birthed from the vibration of the musicians' energetic expressions.

 

I am humbled to have live painted with some of my favorite musicians: Rising Appalachia, Dirtwire, LeahSong, Ott, Phutureprimitive, Bibi McGill, Del The Funky Homosapien, Don Carlos... just to name a few.

Bookings

I work in a professional manner, am respectful and responsible in my appearance and in my actions.  I adhere to all stage management requirements, respecting musicians' performance space and energy.  I take up a small area, roughly a 4' x 4' work space.  I do mostly detailed line work where there is no splattering of paint, ensuring any  equipment would not be in harms way of artistic materials.
