Art gave me a path. Conflicted during the discordant era of the 60s and 70s, opportunities to learn about and make art truly were gifts. They gave me authenticity. The prospect that art could change my life changed my life. The west gave me optimism.

Years and many paintings later, after serving luxury brands, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations in the markets for art and design worldwide (currently on the board of the Danforth Museum of Art), I returned to the west from New York City to Livingston, Montana to learn again from the west; to evolve as an artist and rise or fall by braving perils and finding discoveries specific to myself. There is biography in this work. Living in the west, seeing bigger and evolving as an artist. 

Artist Statement 

My paintings and installations start with my vision to see in them that which I have not seen yet, so that another person may see what I see.  

An affair with abstraction has evolved to afford me a visual vocabulary unbound by narrative or depiction. I try to be fluent with the fundamental elements of my art: scale, pattern, color and texture set by the touch of my hand. I am committed to putting color on canvas in whatever manner it takes. 

My renewed western sensibility and awareness of its unique iconography inspires new art with quiet tension embedded in the colorful adjacencies. This place is a determinative element in this work.  

My artistic journey has evolved over decades. It is why I go to the studio: to find out what’s next. To see what has yet to be seen.
