Artist Statement

I was born in 1956 in Red Bank, New Jersey. I am a self-taught artist. My knowledge of art is mostly from books of Dali, Ernst Fuchs, and Vermeer. I paint and draw but am now basically digital. My approach is that of a painter, using opaque and transparent multilayers and finished details last to incorporate my own mythologies and hallucinations. My works are my dreams and mythological worlds that incorporate some of my long-standing interests; nature, geometry, and architecture into a visual matrix. I feel the job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.
