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. The materials come from the earth (well all do so far), the color comes from the sky, and the inspiration comes from the universe.   I love color and paint.  Painting and creating for 30 years.  My work has traveled to several countries around the world in private collections.  Not really a gallery kind of guy, but here are some of the group shows including:

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

Insomnia Cafe, Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, 1995;

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

Loved selling work on the street on Hollywood Blvd...in the LA garage tradition...great fun!
