Follow along as a 2011 grad paints the story of the United States Naval Academy
The story of the U.S. Naval Academy has been told many times, through words, photographs, music, movies… but rarely is it captured through the process of mixing color and laying down paint, especially by someone who has walked (chopped) the halls themself.
I am a 2011 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who spent 6 years active duty before finally committing to an creative vision I had as a plebe. In between duty, deployments, and quals, I committed myself to studying painting, learning a visual language in color, edges, value, and the lovely smell of oil and pigment.
About this project
Every few months, I explore a facet of the experience through a series of paintings which are available for purchase (or just enjoying in the online gallery!). I let inspiration drive the content… I approach each series with a concept but let the creative process dictate the outcome of paintings.
My current vision carries me through 2020 with about one series released a quarter. Right now you have found me deep in the creation phase… showing up, day after day, with excitement (and a little trepidation) as ideas materialize.
Come follow along!
