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; to view them through a looking glass and then draw them. I planned to be a doctor. While studying micro-biology, I continued to create illustrations. Recognizing my talent, my professor urged me to pursue a degree in bio-medical illustration. After three years of pre-med and four years of fine art, I received a BFA from California State University at Long Beach.
After receiving an MS Degree in Business and working as a marketing director for many years, I finally began to focus on fine art oil painting.
My art has a foundation in the workings of the physical universe, but unlike the tight control and confines bio-medical illustration, it has 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 the paintings, allowing the changes of daylight to renew the focus each canvas reveals.
Exploiting the chemical and physical nature of oil paint to erupt in fiery colors and gyrating paint strokes inspire these pieces.
Art can be viewed at every level of the physical universe, and often times for me, far beyond. Please enjoy the mindscapes.
