A STUDIO is my workplace located in the warehouse district of Houston,
Texas. My objective in creating art is to move the senses by giving an
intensification of reality. I’m particularly interested in engaging the viewer as a
participant interpreting and interacting with the artwork. I strive through the
application of color, texture, and imagery to achieve this goal. The materials,
subject matter and techniques are of secondary importance to me.

Nature, nesting and nurturing interest me and are recurrent themes throughout
my artwork. The transitions, transformations, and expectations inherent in these
areas provide unending challenges .

My current works vary from representational to pure abstraction. The majority of
my recent paintings are in mixed medias on PVC sheets and wooden panels
