Biography



Matt was drawn to art at an early age and has pursued this curiosity through drawing, music, and video production. He believes that the keys to continued progress are hard work, repetition, and the study of master painters. He strives to convey a sense of space and depth in his work, creating a rich atmosphere and a poetic visual story. He uses a limited palette of earth tones with an occasional highlight of color. Matt is captured by the elusive ever-changing moments of the world around us, and strives to capture this fleeting beauty in his work.
 
Artist Statement
I use rough textured paper and work at an angle that allows the water and pigment to flow down the paper and mix. One aspect of watercolor that is forever engaging is it’s spontaneity. I try my best to constantly observe what is happening on the paper and react to it. If I am forceful, it usually doesn’t work out. I think some of the most beautiful parts of my paintings are the reactions on the paper that I couldn’t have planned. That is what makes each piece unique unto itself. I love watercolor and I know it will continue to challenge me for years to come.
