I like to paint with oil pastels, rock climb, play chess, cook breakfast, drink wine, and enjoy my yoga practice. Some of my recent paintings are originals but I also paint replicas of works by Matisse, Picasso, Klimt, and others. I'm not that good, but I am getting better with practice. I consider myself more of a colorist than a painter. I'm currently exploring the technique of surrealist artists like Fini and abstract artists such as Kandinsky. I do this purely for fun. I focus the majority of my time and energy on creativity and responsibilities, especially those that build relationships with friends, family, and community
By day I run a small business providing data science and analytic services.
