Los Angeles, CA, USA
___ i am an american born artist exhibited, published and represented internationally.
i strayed into the arts in my mid-twenties after an initial career pursuit in international diplomacy (BA. in international politics) and subsequently worked within both the uk parliament and the us senate. ....... i then moved on and pursued a career in the arts procuring a BFA and an MFA degree in fine-art.

I have been exhibited, published and represented internationally since 1988 and i've worked with virtually every medium. ……. my current work consists of mixed-media paintings _ digitally produced limited-editions _ performance art _ photography _ sculpture _ video

my current work is the embodiment of both a conceptual and visual narrative. without becoming too descriptive or anecdotal, my intent is to inject a philosophical, political and 'spiritual' subtext into my art. color and suggestive images and/or 'objects' are the protagonists. the canvas is my stage: space, form, logic and sensibility are my thread. PASSION IS MY NEEDLE!!! my intent here is to transcend aesthetics and prompt thought within each piece i create...........this mixed-media work is consistent with the use of 'non-sanctioned' materials and the incorporation of discarded, found and self-made elements. light, texture and the pretense of three-dimensionality are also very pertinent considerations within the 'canvas'. ultimately, the subsequent and often abstract juxtaposition and appropriation of various elements within my work is both aesthetically 'easy-on-the-eye' and conceptually provocative...........................
