The subject of my artwork is in constant exploration of our shared human experience.  I like to explore the human face most often as the most expressive image to all humanity. I seek to project emotions that are rarely depicted such as curiosity, wonderment, fearlessness, intrigue, and adventure with all those subtle nuances in between. I place the viewer in the eyes of vivid characters expressing their immediate experience, often inspired by real life individuals or a combination of real and total fantasy. I reach for high visual and emotional impact even within the more complex or reserved emotions we all have.  On occasion I will take my explorations into pure non objective abstractions, or panoramic vista's that are in many ways projecting the very same emotional subject matter.

I do a lot of work in large format up to 5 x 10 feet. I also do small format at 12" x 12" and many at the more standard sizes. There is a wide range to the media I will use. My favorites include sumi ink, oils and metal paints.
