After earning my B.A. degree in art from San Diego State University, I worked as a graphic designer and art director.
I later focused my energy into creating copper enamels and etched glass.
A long career followed designing high end room size custom area rugs working with interior designers. Some of my rugs were very abstract in shape and design and some were more traditional.
My style of painting has evolved through many years of exploration. My copper enamels, both hard edge and ethereal, translated in later years into a spontaneous painting style. Bold colors and swift, blunt strokes predominate. Today I paint original contemporary abstract expressionist paintings, original contemporary abstract and impressionist landscape and floral paintings and original contemporary figurative paintings in acrylics on stretched canvas.
Some of my pieces have an oriental influence due to a period of time spent living in Japan during my impressionable childhood years.
I have created and sold over 2300 original paintings over the last 13 years online and through galleries and commissions.
I am a published artist and my award winning art has been viewed in many juried exhibitions, galleries, TV shows, blogs, and in private/corporate collections internationally.
You can see some of my paintings in the new season of AMC’s “Mad Men”.
My studio is located in Burnsville, North Carolina.
