Statement

I work in all mediums; oil, acrylic, watercolor. And all sizes. I have four 12" x 12" paintings showing in a gallery in Manhattan and I have 50' murals seen in Hollywood. I have been a graphic artist, commercial film director, an advertising creative director, book designer, magazine designer, childrens book illustrator, fine artist, muralist, decorative painter, tileist, furniture maker,painter.

I am currently painting pet portraits and wildlife,landscapes from my travels.

I paint portraits and architectural subjects as well as design trade show booths and trade show displays. I will do anything and everything as long as it is interesting especially if I haven't done it before. My work is in private and corporate collections around the world - The Boston Children's Museum's permanent collection - on television shows like HGTV's, Awesome Interiors and magazines from Architectural Digest, Modern Home and American Artist to name a few. I exhibit regularly, show at art fairs, and display my work on a number of important Internet sites.
