Hello and Welcome!
All artwork is hand-crafted using high quality, archival materials. Sculptures, paintings and hand-pulled prints are created from raw materials I have personally hand selected and/or reclaimed. Conservation and preservation are primary concerns in the overall construction of my work. The intent is to provide longevity that will far surpass my lifespan and future generations to come.
In general, my work is very expressive, with free-flowing, gestural lines that are counter balanced by vibrant colors and rhythmic textures. Within each composition I combine this with a wide variety of varying styles and thoughts, in the spirit of the expressionists. Please enjoy.

More than 1.2 million people visited the temporary work of art in northern Italy by Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Fabric-covered piers 3 KM in length, were constructed across the water of Italy's Lake Iseo and continued along 2.5 KM of pedestrian streets. For 16 days, The Floating Piers was free and accessible to the public, no tickets or reservations were required.
"An important part of this project is the temporary part, it has a nomadic quality—this is why after 16 days it is gone." - Christo
