These are original works I created from 1995–2015. I enjoy working in a variety of styles ranging from expressionism to art noveau and everything in between. My work has been displayed in many galleries and juried exhibits and featured in magazines such as Fluent and Noir. Portraiture, murals and commissioned work can be requested here.
Acrylic on canvas, 24x28" (2012). This, Rhino and Gnostics and future others were a collaborative effort posthumously between myself and my good friend's deceased grandmother. Upon her passing, the family was left with a large collection of artwork the grandmother had created in her final years in a senior community. They kept their favorites and then donated the canvases to me due to space constraints on their behalf. Rather than undoing all the effort she made in creating these works, I chose to re-imagine them and incorporate the elements I enjoyed from each. There was an amazing painterly build on the canvas with very liberal applications of paint. She also really enjoyed working in geometric and cubist terms which are the polar opposite of my comfort zones.
Oil and acrylic on canvas, 18x24" (2014). John Wayne as portrayed in "The Commancheros". Masculinity in blush with periwinkle sash, salmon cotton double-breast, and high-waisted, double-belted khakis. (pea shooter optional.) $500
This 4'x8' board was painted in 72 hours for the Harrisburg Arts Festival "Street Art Challenge". The theme was "super hero selfie", meaning that the piece was to incorporate a super hero and the viewer was meant to interact with it. I allotted some dead space at the bottom right for the viewer to stand and take a photograph while the action occurs around them. I used a style reminiscent of my golden age of comics from the 80's and artists like Frank Miller, John Buscema, Jack Kirby and George Perez. I'm proud to say that I won this challenge and over $5000 was raised for the Shalom House for underprivileged children.
