Aidan was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. He became interested in painting in high school and after attending a 5-week pre-college program at the San Francisco Art Institute he resolved to become a professional artist.  He is currently completing his BFA in drawing and painting at the Laguna College of Art and Design in Laguna Beach.

As a representational painter, Aidan’s primary focus is on portraiture.  Rendered in great detail, the paintings stare piercingly back at the viewer.

Aidan has exhibited throughout Orange County at South Coast Art Center, B Minus Studios, and the LCAD gallery.  Awards include 1st place from the Art Renewal Center Student Competition and Best in Show at the 2015 LCAD Student Juried Exhibition.  Future plans include pursuing an MFA and seeking gallery representation.
