I wish to ignite a sense of joy through paintings that record the inspiring moments that abound. Allowing my imagination to commingle with an accurate representation of the moment, these works are an elevated account of memories, philosophies, and concepts that at first glance may seem familiar but often straddle the line of possible, In the end, I hope to enliven a sense of genuine optimism.


I live in Charleston, SC with my beautiful wife Megan. Together, we own and operate RLS fine art gallery, representing 16 contemporary painters from around the country
