As an attorney, my experience is extensive. I practiced criminal defense law for over four decades. As an artist, I am self-taught and passionate. My work reflects an intensity of emotion and thought, honed through a lifetime of rich and expansive interactions with the world and the fascinating people who live in it.

Dedicating over forty years to building my legal skills, I explore my experiences in this field through introspection that is expressed in my series of original paintings entitled “A Brush with the Law”.

My emergence into art was paved by my spiritual teacher who emphasized creativity and the necessity of getting out of the way of one’s own head. I soon discovered that, even though I couldn’t sing or dance, I was intrigued by the use of color and texture.

Through meditation and keen observation, my creativity has blossomed. Painting has become an outlet that has taken me on a journey that I share with the viewer through works that are as intriguing to the mind as they are a delight to the eye.

My unique use of raw canvas allows its bare essence to create an interplay of primitive energy and sophisticated emotions. A very absorptive surface, raw canvas propels me to create unpredictable, explosive and vibrant results.

I have also carried this exploration of surface to the use of silkscreens, requiring the application of paint from the back of the material, again producing unanticipated textures and formations as well as unique and dramatic results.

“Lost in the City” Acrylic on Raw Canvas, 24″ x 24″

 

Color dictates and controls not only what I paint, but also the medium that I paint with. Pieces of discarded objects often magically find their way onto my canvas. Those objects call out to me for the colors that will convey their unique messages and emotions to the viewer. They are as much a part of my art as the law is a part of my vocation. Each piece I create expresses the artist’s struggle and joy in communicating my heart, mind, and soul as I travel through a systematic world.

My work reflects my never-ending search for new alternatives and solutions to problems both in art and in the courtroom. I am driven to always look at things in new ways, and if successful, my paintings can inspire others to do the same.
