Statement

My ideas on artistic creation are basic.  Paint on just about anything, and bring together the elements that are in my immediate environment to create something that will speak to someone in the future.  I love color and paint.  Painting and creating for 30 years.  My work is in many private collections around the world.  Shown in several private, public and charitable groups shows including:

Croker + Griffin, 271 Main St. Wakefield, RI;  2008 thru 2010 -- Curated and owned gallery venue.

Insomnia Cafe, Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, 1995;

Out of the Closet Gallery, La Brea Blvd., Los Angeles 1994

Garden Party Auction at the Backlot of Universal Studios for AIDS Project Los Angeles, 1995

Pacific Design Center for Project Angel Food, 1996 (unexpectedly, my work was displayed between a John Baldessari and a Bruce Weber!!)

I typically like to sell work directly to the collector.  In Los Angeles, I often sold my work from the front of my home on Hollywood Blvd. or from my downtown studio.  Collections include the late Jane Russell, Los Angeles;  John Aaroe, Los Angeles;  Scott & Julie Latham, Providence RI;  Richard Quest, London;  John D'Allessandro, San Francisco; Tina McQueen, Malvern PA;  Ian Morich, Sydney among others.   Projects include the Croker + Griffin Gallery in Wakefield Rhode Island dedicated to providing gallery shows to upcoming artists from 2008 to 2010.  Awarded a "Best in Rhode Island" award by Rhode Island magazine.
