Life Is Art In Progress

  Peter Max was the first artist to inspire the style of visual art that I enjoy painting. My compositions include social realism, synesthetic depictions of music, abstracts and dream imagery. Regardless of subject, I utilize bold color, graphic elements and exaggerated shapes to create worlds which are both whimsical and exciting. Dots, circles and stars are signature elements consistently incorporated in my pieces. I never copy from photos.

Every idea originates from within.


  Intriguing photography can inspire thoughts about people, places or moments in time. Although Annie Liebovitz and Carrie Mae Weems are my favorite artists behind a camera, I don’t subscribe to any particular technique. There’s delight in choosing the right subject in the right light, and in enhancing those images with digital editing.

 Akin to film producers Steven King, Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino playing characters in their own movies, I occasionally star in my own works.
