About Me.

As a Contemporary Expressionist Artist my art conveys an abstract reality of a conceptual idea. I use mood, and emotions to develop the conceptual idea, which creates complex artwork.  My work is striking and will hold your attention with bold colors and intriguing pattern play. My style has depth with layers and the result is visually exciting, dramatic, and powerful. Some of my pieces are completely abstract while others are a mix of both abstraction and figurative.
