Statement

My work has developed out of the Expressionist movement in that I have incorporated many of the thoughts and ideas dating back to its inception in the late 19th century, so many distinctly different approaches and styles of those considered to be expressionists. In general, my work is expressive, with free-flowing, gestural lines that are counter balanced by vibrant colors and rhythmic textures, combined with a wide variety of styles and thoughts, in the spirit of the expressionists, within each composition. As I have intermingled many of the thoughts and ideas of the expressionists, in conjunction with the developing 21st century, a new and unique style of fine art—Fusion—has emerged.

Standard Practices

All artwork is produced by hand, 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. All of the work is guaranteed to be 100% original in its development and style, and is fully archived for historical placement. To date there have been no commercial reproductions of my work out of personal devotion to the creation and integrity of original fine art.
