I have spent 50 years in the entertainment industry as an Art Director and Designer for the theatre, movies, theme parks and restaurants. Throughout these years I've created many paintings and sculptures that originally were part of these projects and were subsequently moved into the private collections of the people associated with them.

I take my inspiration from the organic forms of flowers, plants and the human figure. My paintings are based in realism but lean towards fantasy. I interpret these subjects in a style that I like to think of as a cross between Baroque and Expressionism. I am a student of Art History and some of my works make references to the art of the past dating back to antiquity. These paintings also contain historical references that help me express my ideas in unique contemporary visualizations.

Nevertheless, I want my paintings to be enjoyed for their decorative quality as much as for anything else that they may express. I hope you find my works enjoyable as well as thought provoking.
