from the Artist...
The creation of art is my full time occupation. Each new painting
I attempt is given my complete attention and is my total measure
of love. I strive for perfection on each new project I begin and
contemplate all the elements of composition in each scene.
Often, I will attack a new painting with a method Ive never
attempted before, both to keep me on edge and to push myself in
new directions artistically. No matter how proficient I become
in any style, I hope these differing approaches will help maintain
a sense of mystery and awe in my work.
While I have some formal art education in my earlier years, my
experience revolves mostly around my intense desire to create
new paintings. And my career is based upon me actively pursuing
In addition to Southern California gallery representation, my
work has been purchased by collectors throughout the United States
including New York and Hawaii. Additionally, my paintings appear
in collections as far away as Canada, Japan, England and Scandinavia.
