Head prevails the eye
So persuaded is the heart
Its presence as real

In contrast to my years as a professional illustrator and graphic designer, painting allows for a more personal
path of expression although, one area informs the other.

With less interest in the planned result, I prefer to exercise my eyes by loosely sketching concepts, looking for exciting interactions of color and shapes in my day, and pulling the resulting impressions into imagery while resolving the questions and problems it presents  -  thoroughly indulging myself in the conversation of colors, shapes and matter.

Currently, I am exploring a multimedia approach building layers with transparency and textures with monoprint at times adding collage with my cache of painted or found papers. In the digital work I combine scans of my painting, or use the digital paint in itself. Digital work is a coming attraction on the website but some are posted on my instagram page.
