I began painting with beer nearly two years ago when I forgot to bring my paints with me to a local drink and draw. I had a few brushes and paper with me at the time so I just dipped my brush in the stout I was drinking and began to play with a fun new medium.

After going on a promotional tour with New Holland Brewery in the fall of 2014, I realized that I could combine art and beer into a full time career. I now interview and paint the portraits of some of the most interesting people in and around the world of craft beer, including bar owners, brewery owners, musicians, comedians, chefs, farmers, and some of my fellow artists.
