I have more than forty years of experience, and am a full-time artist. I live in the gently rolling hills of Glencoe, Missouri. I have spent my entire life refining my knowledge in the creation of art, with little else than a will to succeed. In my hands, crayons, brushes, pencils, paint and palette knives have become as comfortable to me as the act of breathing.

Over these years I have absorbed a wealth of knowledge from owning several successful art related businesses, leading me to a final destination of abstraction through fine art.

My approach is of my own design; that of layering and weaving colors onto panels and paper to produce interpretations rather than representational renderings.

I create abstracts which fall just short of recognizable features, that might suggest lost or forgotten places, eroded forests, fragments of frescos, bits of stone or walls and wastelands destroyed by time.

My process incorporates the addition and subtraction of paint to and from each surface, by pushing and pulling it with the tilt and turn of my knives.

Excavating and scraping each color, I incorporate improvisational gestures, mark making, horizon lines and other intuitive strokes, bringing everything onto and through the paint, to create a final balanced composition.

The strength of my work is encapsulated by my intuitive process, by which I feel that the board, along with music and my knives are in control. I am just the facilitator, reaching for the end result.

Every painting has its own voice listed on the back, noting the composer or musician whose work was played during the creation of each piece, so much so, that several of my various series have been named for those artists.

My work has been collected by hundreds of private buyers as well as corporations who appreciate my style for its rich colors and deep textures that provide the viewer the possibility of hidden stories and secrets that entertain the senses.
