About the Artist

I grew up in Conroe, Texas. Moved to Oxford, MS to get a PhD in American literature at The University of Mississippi. Published a novel. Drove in an RV with my dog cross-country for three years. Back in Texas to make art.

Artist Statement

I am a painter who owns a gallery with my wife, Maria Montoya Stayton, in downtown Bastrop. While I often challenge myself to paint new ideas, I usually return to this unifying one: I paint to make the old myths new. I'm particularly interested in updating the mythology of our Americas. I toured much of the U.S. in my RV with my standard poodle, Nutella. Much of that trek involved touring preColumbian sites, such as Southeastern mounds of the Five Nations, Southwestern pueblo civilizations or sites in the Pacific Northwest. And I paid particular interest to those contemporary Indigenous American artists that updated traditional motifs. Once I planted roots again in Bastrop, Texas, I got to work. My worst day painting is still far better than some of my better days doing something else. It has left me grateful.
