The diversity of my work often leaves people without a concrete way to categorize me. My restless mind and a desire to make a living utilizing my craft, overrode the prevailing advice of the art world, to stick with one thing that people can remember and recognize. In other words, build a brand. For better or worse I could not follow that advice and my brand became the very diversity I was warned to avoid. The result is almost 40 years of making a living with my craft and more than a dozen series and categories that I have worked in over the years.
I began my career with larger format work painting theater backdrops and murals and even painting the bottom of swimming pools to look like underwater scenes. For several years I did commercial murals including for the Cinemark Theater chain in their theaters all around the country. I have also spent years painting ceilings, domes and walls of private homes in many styles from traditional to trompe l’oeil, and from classical old world to contemporary.
