The Artist

Over the years, I have become intrigued with words. Not only is a word a beautiful collection of lines, but it is a residue of personal history. The words in my work, once readable, have become vague and ambiguous. When I stare at words long enough their purpose or meaning becomes blurred and complicated.

More recently, the landscape paintings are impressions and memories of many visits through the Southwest. These evolved from the earlier rock formations series and small works entitled "Arrow" and "Mountain."

I was born and raised in New York State, attended State University of New York in Buffalo, and received a BFA in Communication Design. I lived in Atlanta, Georgia for six years where I was active in the art community and currently live in Houston, Texas.
