In my paintings color is a compositional force. I use color as my primary vehicle for expressing form and exploring spatial relationships. I paint what I see but my approach is purely subjective and painterly. The physicality of the paint and the personality of the brush strokes are as exciting as the landscape.
Painting is a journey that brings constant change and question. I draw inspiration from the works of Cezanne, Van Gogh, Matisse and Richard Diebenkorn. My goal is to be an honest, expressive painter and to keep exploring the natural world.
I've been exhibiting my work in New York City since 2004. This includes many group shows and three solo shows at Bowery Gallery in Chelsea. My full exhibition history is on the " ABOUT THE ARTIST" tab.
Travels to Europe over a 10-year period to research design trends for fashion projects provided an ideal opportunity to spend time in the museums of Paris, London, Munich, Florence. As a result, I made a commitment to painting and Art.
