I have been a professional painter, photographer, and stylist since 1982. My practice includes capturing the beauty of birds on repurposed found silver plated trays and plates. Using found discarded objects in this series is my small contribution to saving the planet.
In another series I paint portraits of people that I find inspiring. The human figure is also used metaphorically in my work to explore beauty and the human condition. Occasionally I liberate myself completely from representational imagery and focus solely on exploring color and the fluid properties of paint to create abstract emotive work.
I started my artistic journey in 1967, when my 5th grade English teacher asked us to make some pop art objects. I went home and made a giant light switch and an Alka Seltzer tablet out of cardboard and old house paint.
My artwork has been exhibited in galleries and design stores across the United States. My pronouns are he and him. I have also maintained parallel creative careers in addition to my fine art practice. This multitude of creative pursuits has shaped my distinctive aesthetic. My multidisciplinary experience, along with a sophisticated sense of beauty and excellence, gives me the ability to embrace a range of genres, styles, and influences. My biggest inspiration is our relationship to nature. This includes our physical and psychological selves in a time when our planet is shouting at us to listen. Expression to me is the practice of managing your inner critics and finding joy. You have to be vigilant and turn down the volume of those limiting voices in your head, and replace them with positive affirmations and self love.
