I’ve always been fascinated by life science and have wondered about my significance in life’s immenseness.
As a child I loved to collect bugs, rock, leaves, and shells. I would view them through a looking glass and then draw what I saw. My plan was to become a doctor. An influential micro-biology professor urged me to pursue a degree in bio-medical illustration. I followed her advice and completed a BFA degree from California State University at Long Beach.
Next, I earned an MS Degree in Business which combined well with my art talent setting me on a path to a successful career in marketing. I finally began to focus on my passion for oil painting in or about 2006.
My art has a foundation in the workings of the physical universe. Unlike the tight control that bio-medical illustration requires, my art has evolved with a highly emotional and colorful release in the abstract. The artists that most influence my work are:
- Vincent Willem van Gogh > Thick paint and texture
- Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin > Vivid color and charm
- Paul Jackson Pollock > Free and direct expression
- Mark Rothko > Color Field Relationships
- Willem de Kooning > Action Painting

Music is the inspiration for my mindscapes. Texture is the foundation on which color and light dance. Music punches the beat and soul of my paintings. As the daylight changes from yellow morning to blue evening light, the paintings react with changes in texture, color, and vibrance.
I have learned to exploit the chemical and physical nature of oil paint to enable an eruption in fiery colors and gyrating paint strokes that are inspired by the music in these pieces.
Art can be viewed at every level of the physical universe, and often times for me, far beyond. Please enjoy!
