abstract-expressionism, primitive, outsider-art, mixed-media

Primitive abstract artist from Brooklyn, NY.

My artwork is a collage of improvisational sessions mixed and layered together over the course of days, weeks, or months. The ideas and inspiration come from whatever I see and experience in everyday life. The end restuls is a melting pot of random thoughts, feelings, inspiration, and influences. It's similar to a dream where things stored in your head get mixed together in strange ways. I am not always sure what my paintings are about, and they are open to interpretation.

Since I have no formal art training, I learn through studying the art of others and mix this into my own artwork. My biggest influences are the abstract painters, and primitive art from the American Indians and Egyptians.
