After a successful 30+ year career as a graphic designer, I began to become frustrated with the new technologies and changing landscape of the design field. I slowly began to paint more and more and now I’ve become, with a few exceptions, a full-time painter.

My creative process is ever evolving. After 4 years of hard work and focus on painting, I’ve realized that I spent my entire design career designing like a painter, and ironically I now paint like a designer. The simplicity and graphic nature of my work is informed by a few of my favorite artists: Charles Demuth, David Hockney, Alex Katz and Francois Bard.

Competitive by nature, I am constantly working to hone my painting techniques to align with my own personal sense of artistic balance and tension.. It’s my goal to make each painting better than the last, so as I try to do that, I hope people will check in often and see that my hard work and will to succeed are beginning to allow me to express these ideas. It’s my hope that what you see here is the tip of the iceberg.
