About me
I am painter of figurative/narrative works, and a teacher of painting and drawing. I have exhibited in New York City, the San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles (CA) and Rosario and Santa Fe, Argentina. I have taught art in NYC, upstate NY, northern California and in Las Vegas.

Some excerpts from my artist statement on what my work is about:

"My paintings are narratives that depict encounters between the everyday world of human existence and that of the numinous or spiritual world that intersects with it. The imagery found in my paintings has been drawn from several primary sources: accounts of near-death experiences, encounters with supposed alien intelligences, and theoretical aspects of contemporary biophysics and quantum physics that seem to offer some possible explanations for these phenomena. ...

"Stylistically, my painting has been most strongly influenced by two sources: through exposure during my formative years to the vivid and saturated color schemes of comic book cover art, animated cartoons and anime, and by the works of the 17th Century Baroque Spanish and Neapolitan master painters. I am drawn to the intense spirituality found in these earlier paintings, often expressed through spiraling, swirling patterns of energy. The theatricality these two sources have in common is also very appealing to me. Visually, my paintings area synthesis of these varied influences."

I have drawn and painted extensively from the live model, but in recent years have been using more photo reference. I have been in the Las Vegas area less than two years, and I would like to expand my contacts in the model community.
