My work tends to be more intuitive than inspirational. I use the tools provided to me by my great teachers and mentors, Ed Pramuk and the late Michael Crespo, and I am constantly revisiting the writings and teachings of Hans Hoffman and a few more of the pioneers of 20th century art.


I have learned that if you work at it, and be responsive to what the paint will tell you, the connection between memory, brush and media will connect and then it is up to you to refine and shape the painting.


I work in series as this site shows, but there may be years between items within the series.
