I am mainly a commission artist. What’s a commission artist doing making bow ties you ask? From start to finish, commissioned art can take a long time before I can see completed artwork, so, I try to find time to design independent works of art, art that is not commissioned.

My paintings and drawings are pieces in a never ending narrative series that explores memory, nostalgia, and trauma with a dark and surreal humor. I am driven by an ongoing need to examine evidence from the past and transform difficult experiences into visual narratives that reveal meaning or provide comfort. I create illustrative images that […]

I have been taking pictures since my first Black & White Darkroom class in Art School many decades ago. Currently, I make both inkjet and darkroom prints of my photographic images. One recent series, exhibited in January 2021 with The Wildroot Group, featured black & white inkjet prints taken on the streets of Manhattan. They […]
