I’m excited to announce that the Massillon Museum will be hosting a solo show of my artwork in 2022! Currently slated for the summer months, the exhibition will present works from “The Absolute” series of oil paintings. Located in northeast Ohio, MassMu belongs to the national museum advocacy conglomerate  American Alliance of Museums and has had backing from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the Ohio Arts Council (OAC), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Naturally, there’s still a lot of planning and time between now and the summer of 2022, but I’m enthusiastic about the opportunity and wanted to share this exciting news as it came in. More info and posts will come as things get buttoned down, but I’d like to be the first to thank the museum and all of their supporters for the excellent groundwork that they have laid for artists. I look forward to it!

I’m super excited to announce that Issue 6 of ARTIST TALK MAGAZINE has been published and I am a featured artist with a 6-page spread! ARTIST TALK MAGAZINE is a quarterly magazine, originating from the United Kingdom and features Artists from all across the globe. It is a magazine for everyone and is written by Artists. The main focus of the magazine is to showcase Artists and to give them a chance to share, in more depth, the work they produce. It aims to showcase a wide range of work, inspired by many different influences.

So far, I’ve been really impressed with how slick the online version of the magazine is. You can view it online and purchase a physical copy of any issue here. I’ve already purchased a couple copies for myself and eagerly await their arrival.

Special thanks to Grant Milne who created such an amazing platform for artists!
