Lives in
Tustin, CA


Clean. Basic. Modern.
This is my mantra.

I want each canvas to feel like a clean room. No dirt, no mess or clutter, just a clean, open space to relax and clear your head.

Basic is what's left after the excess baggage is stripped away.

Using subtle nostalgia in form and color, I am recalling and resurrecting what I consider the most modern, progressive ideas of all time, consciousness expansion and the "Space Age."

Clean. Basic. Modern.

Behind every artwork, there is a ritual and my ritual includes:
-canvas, paint and music

In particular, the significance of music in my work is fundamental and as much of a presece as canvasand paint. It's the fuel and often dictates the mood and flow of the piece.
The titles are also fundamental. They range from lyrical to philosophical, poitical, ironic or just plain comical. Sometimes the work inspires the title and sometimes the reverse. I don't incorporate words directly into the work because I prefer them to be subliminal.
