I was born outside Los Angeles, CA, not far from LAX airport, as if my life were branded by the journey. The expression through art on the vehicle of imagination has been a journey within, just as planes and trains have taken me afar: I like color. I like texture. I like ideas and discovery. I like getting my hands in the medium. I like being human more than being an idea. My works are in mixed media and photography.
2003-2014 I photo-documented the Christian Consecrated Space - I have 15 books of my work available to collect at Blurb.com
The work here on Saatchi were selected by me as a few of my favorites from my career as a commercial and a fine arts artist for over 40 years (since early 1979)... so we can say, this work is celebrating my 40th anniversary as a professional artist/phtogorapher.
