(American Artist, b. 1959)

I was born and raised in Torrance, California.  It was an idyllic childhood in what was once a small pacific--coast beach town with miles of open fields.  In my twenties I moved to Los Angeles; in 2002 I relocated to Palm Desert where I currently reside. 


 

In 1982 I graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in Music/Composition.  My former daytime career: a full-time systems analyst for a toy corporation, as well as teaching part-time at a private music school.  My free time over the years has been occupied by painting, composing/recording music and building acoustic guitars.

 

I have been painting since I was a teenager.  During the 1980's I painted mostly abstract works; during the 1990's I became more interested in realism, portraiture and landscapes (click on RETRO to see  a retrospective of past works, click on MUSIC to hear original songs and compositions).  In 2020 I returned to painting abstract works exclusively, using palette knives and paints that are rich with pigment, on canvas, linen and masonite supports. 

 

Along with the paintings, I am offering digital archival prints.  These prints are made with the highest quality and attention to detail by Visual Arts Imaging, Palm Springs, CA. My prints are available on FineArt textured archival paper (310g), which compliments these images perfectly.

They are available in two sizes:

1.  The original size of the painting, with a 1" white border.

2.  The original size X 1.5 enlargement, with a 1" white border.

 

This first series of paintings consists of 18 works in oil called SUBTERRANEAN. Each painting has its own title as well.  They were painted from January 2020 through January of 2021.  During this time the world started changing rapidly, erupting into an all-time fury of political madness, accompanied by a global pandemic and a media/communication breakdown leaving only uncertainty in its wake.  Welcome to my gallery.

 

 

Prints are also available on FineArt archival canvas with the same sizing options as the paper prints. Canvas prints have a 2.5" white border for stretching.

All prints are signed on the back and come with a certificate of authenticity.

Custom sizes are available on request.
