Artist Statement:

I am mostly self-taught, but have taken painting courses at the Cleveland Museum of Art, Mass. College of Art, and the San Francisco Art Institute. Most of my work now is done on board, incorporating different styles and subject matter. My work explores themes related to mood, memories, and contemporary life. Technically, I would describe my work as combining expressionism and a loose form of realism. Thematically, I would say my paintings often suggest a dark, noir kind of narrative - kind of mysterious, kind of sensual, but, also, I hope, fun in a way. Major influences include Edward Hopper, early David Hockney, and Richard Diebenkorn and the other Bay Area Figurative artists.
