I found Karin Jurick through a random link online. She did a series called “Bust-ed” consisting of 100 faces from mug shots. The paintings are simple, tiny and amazingly playful.

In a nutshell, I wanted to be an illustrator when I started college. Instead, I ended up helping my parents run a business – and after losing both my mom and dad – I became the owner. My shop was in business for nearly 32 years, I recently closed up for good.

After 15+ years of not doing any art, in 2004 I started painting. I sold enough on eBay to build a studio in my back yard – then began using oils for the first time.

That lead to selling more paintings on eBay – then a year later I entered work in a gallery. A year later, I entered into another gallery, then another. Now I’m in
a comfortable place – doing larger works for those three galleries while I continue to paint small pieces that frequently auction on eBay.

I take my camera everywhere, paint from those photos – moments in time, people just doing their thing.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
