Like most artists, my paintings reflect my personality and temperament. Looking at my paintings as impartially as I can, I'd have to admit to a love of colour and composition, maybe a certain degree of boldness and disinterest in great detail and trust in what I do. Then again, having been drawing for such a long time, from a small lad scrawling on the walls of my bedroom in crayon, to creating storyboards for ad agencies, to rolling paint onto 4 x 8' monster works, I can't help feel I have achieved a certain level of confidence in how I work create my paintings. But it has taken a certain investment in time, passion and commitment on my part. And I'm fortunate to achieved a certain amount of success in a challenging vocation. I try to work with colour, laying it down quickly and then manipulating it into recognizable imagery. I find that using acrylic paint is best for me since it dries quickly and I can overlay other colours as needed to give my work the luminosity it deserves. Some of my inspiration comes from artists like Degas, Manet, Diebenkorn, Mark Rothko and Jack Bush.
