|Artist Statement:||My paintings have been internationally collected for over 13 years selling over 5425 paintings in that time. I have exhibited in many galleries in the USA and at contemporary interior design showrooms such as Holly Hunt. The paintings I create are continually published worldwide in print and on the internet. Thousands of my paintings are part of private and corporate collections in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Boston, Seattle, Detroit, Houston, Hong Kong, Dubai, Toronto, Sydney, Brazil, The United Kingdom and Europe. Highly focused, self-driven and motivated, I strive for more creativity and creating innovative works of art daily
I primarily studied industrial design in college and was taught conceptual thinking. My ideas towards art are very diversified and I do not paint in just one particular style. I enjoy creating a new idea or concept and running with it. The challenge to create something not thought of by others excites my artistic mind. Although my work is recognizable through my unique brushwork, sense of color and structural thinking towards composing art.
Visual experiences living in Chicago observing design, architecture and urban art are reflected in my body of work.
As an observer of the world around me, I focus upon architecture, Bauhaus design, minimalism, things that catch my eye and objects I am drawn to visually. Things that have simple structure, design and form stimulate my visual senses.
