   I am an artist who has made my living through my art since finishing school in 1992. I have resided in Miami Beach since2005.

  Artists are visual historians. My artwork reflects the moods, issues, and tribulations mankind experiences within a given generation. We are antennae: absorbing our environment, ruminating on events that impact us, and expressingthe energy resulting. I try to see as much as I can of this world and am stimulated through journeys. Every place reveals a myriad of layers ,information, and inspirations if the participant is willing to actively see versus passively look.

  I was trained primarily as a photographer with a minor in welding. Utilizing all of my resources I create mixed media photo based paintings.  My artworks are often architectural deriving inspiration from man’s inclination to build. Each subject is considered as alive. Every structure has a personality, history, and effect on its environment.

  My materials are carefully chosen. I seek out objects that lend themselves visually and conceptually to the subject I am dealing with. Metals, in general, have an unspoken vocabulary that is a useful tool for subtly transmitting information to the viewer. For instance; copper, by nature, conducts energy and therefore I use it symbolically for its lively aspects. On the other end of the spectrum there is the dead toxic dullness of lead, which can serve as a counterpoint. My vision has always been to evoke how a place feels. The interpretation of time, space, and subtle nuances associated with the experience.

  My palette is unlimited. I utilize my photography and materials that enhance the artwork aesthetically, symbolically,and conceptually. 

  I strive to engage the viewer in a visual dialogue that speaks from the alphabet of the collective unconscious The artwork conjures up a connection thus centering them: if only for a moment.
