My work is described as phrenic figurative studies in the tradition of historical Romanticism . It’s the heroic or tragic figure behind an idea or notion. In my paintings, I intend to explore the emotion of an idea or thought. With the act of observation as the active and subjective author of our reality, imagination becomes, in part, responsible for describing this labyrinth of life. I must explore it and painting satisfies this. I must paint ad inexplorata.
Abstract expressionist whimsical and light hearted – commissions welcome – public, corporate, residential – large scale to small.

My work has morphed over the years, simply because I’m always discovering new pathways within my psyche. 2013-14 brought the shapeshifting animal and human figure to the forefront and was well received.
