Phoinix...

Yes it's one name - Just like Cher or Madonna, only different in every conceivable way. I was born outside of Paris (in the US - what? Hey, it's outside of Paris isn't it?) and tried out a life of adventure before deciding adventure was both very dangerous and highly overrated. I also gave a shot at getting a whole set of academic degrees, which was both expensive and overrated (Political science, English writing & Geology, if you were wondering). My student loans are large enough to be serviced by the World Bank.

My art career has it’s origins in high school where I took an early love of drawing and made performance art exploring the interaction of students and authority figures via replicated identification forms. The student participants would, for the sake of art, assume the fictional identity contained on the “work” and “enact a role” based on the data listed on the piece. Unfortunately, while the work was very well received by the student audience, more formal criticism was rather harsh and this early series of work was subsequently confiscated and destroyed. 

So it made perfect sense in 2003 to junk all of my formal education and resume my early passion for creative work.  I decided to avoid revisiting my ID based performance artwork and concentrate instead on making figurative acrylic paintings, which I do to this day.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help and i- wait- no that's wrong. Hang on... If you'd like to comission artwork or are interested in a piece that's listed as available, or have any other questions, feel free to contact me.

I currently reside in the citystate of Madison Wisconsin, with my partner and our 2 cats.
