Born 1964 in Sevilla, Spain. Raised in the southern US. Influenced by arts and crafts of the South as well as the Abstract movements from Kandinsky on. All things form the man you are. My current artwork deals with the need for the quiet in life without all the words that stop our minds and limit our ways of seeing. Pure visual language. I work with some non-traditional materials in my paintings. Most notably TAR. I use this for its organic quality and the way it causes chemical reactions in the paintings themselves. My drawings use the same visual motifs as the paintings but involve aggressive use of pencil and oil pastel.
4 year BFA Program at Asbury College in Wilmore, KY. A small independent Methodist school where the student teacher ratio was 5:1. I have exhibited nationally from Kentucky to Santa Fe to Chicago. ,
