Artist Statement:

I paint mysteries, especially into the subtleties. I want people to look into the shadows and find the little, unexpected gems of texture and shape. They involve the viewer and help him see what he wants to see, so he can make up his own story.

While some works are influenced by landscapes and natural elements, most have an explosive energy that erupts for a point. Ideas are drawn together by shapes and lines that lead from complex to simple, negative to positive, from dark depths to positive energy, uplifting and happy, free and unchained.


I got really lucky. My mom is a true artist, a wacky creative. She gave me her sense of style, beauty, humor, and a view askew. Dad is an engineer and corporate executive. He gave me his sense of rigor, quality, innovation and leadership. Because they were young and hungry when I was born, they also gave me a firm grounding in DIY. All along the way, they taught me to think for myself.
