Artist’s Statement

I have been creating art in a variety of media my entire life. Now, after a career in high tech, I am finally able to enjoy making art full-time. I rely on my life experience and my natural curiosity to create my art in a variety of mediums including acrylic, watercolor, ink, pencil, paper, clay, and wood. I enjoy taking raw, found, and unused material and transforming it into something new that I hope other people find interesting, beautiful, or inspiring in some way.

To me, all art is abstraction, even realism, as it is filtered through the artist’s own personal perceptions, experiences, interpretations and reactions to that reality. I create my interpretations of reality, my thoughts, feelings and actions in a variety of media using line, shape, color, dimension and form. In turn, my creations inform and transform my feelings, perceptions and thoughts into a journey of discovery and enlightenment that affects how my work will be realized in physical form.

Artist’s Biography

I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida at a time when kids went outside and used their imaginations to play and most TV’s were still black and white. Along the way he married his beautiful and talented wife, Colleen, and helped raise two sons. His path through life has given him a loving family, friends, hopefully some wisdom, and far too many possessions which he & Colleen are in a continuous (aka slow) process of paring down.
