“My art is my language of refinement, always abstract & with a colorists’ palette.

art introspection...


where do you come from, where are your going & what does your art say?

I am self taught & inspired through my exchanges in culture, nature & humanity. My colors are lively & capture the viewer with pause. My art & designs conceptualize a process & work it to completion. Some structured, some construction, reconstruction.

My abstract paintings, conceptual work & photography range in scale from 5 x 5 to  64 x 72 inches. In each format, I explore a dialogue in color & form. My style has a thread of unity. Often working with line & form in patterns with influences from the architecture & organic shapes with simplified colors forming relationships of continuity.

My photography has a painterly element. I capture the subtlety of daily life with an elegant sense of whimsy, telling stories with single composition & a cinematographic arrangement of stills. 

Photography captures a moment, and painting requires one to work to create a moment. Conceptual work fuses all mediums, allowing for social commentary with humor, color, & thoughtful consideration.

My public art allows discourse on the visual arts & the creative process as integral to developing humanity. Art practice inspires commitment. I am engaging in collaborations with artists on a global basis, to push art dialogue & refinement in my art practice.

As a curator and art consultant, I have long studied abstract art, promoting my colleagues' work, while simultaneously developing my own. My work in creative direction for such professional image firms as Massa Design and NBCi has also enabled me to create memorable visual identities & campaign designs for specific clientele.
