Biography


Artist Statement:
 
I believe excellent paintings initiate a paradigm-shift in the viewer as if to hold the audience viewer captive for a short time.

As a fan of classic rock, I can relate to Roger Daltrey of The Who singing in Baba O"Riley "Out here in the fields, ...I get my back into my living" but, I'll tell you that I'm just as much at home in the city. My favorite locations include the Southwest, the red rock of Sedona or Phoenix; the Northeast, the Adirondack Mountains and Maine; the coasts, both east and west.
