From my earliest recall, I transformed any medium available into a representational form or image, usually figurative or landscape. The visual expression gave me a great sense of satisfaction.
Over the years, nothing has really changed, still looking for satisfaction and the connection between figure and space, provoking a reaction with shape, color, texture and form within confined boundaries. My thought has always been that we are real people trying to find our way in an abstract world.
I received my BFA from The University of Texas at Austin and MFA cum laude from the New York Academy of Art in New York City. Artists that I would like to credit as teachers and influences along the way are Steven Assael, Martha Mayer Erlebacher, Michael Frary, Joseph Peller, Edward Schmidt and Charles Umlauf.
Today I paint full time and teach drawing and painting in the New York City area.
