I was born in Anaheim California in 1963. My father was a photographer, painter, and inventor. We camped all over the west coast, regularly visited Disneyland, Museums and Galleries. We lived in New Mexico and Texas and then moved to New Brunswick, NJ. Daytrips were common to Soho and to abandoned barns along the Delaware.
At the age of 7 I began sketching on a regular basis. My father taught me about composition and picking the best sketch out of a group. I had a number of shows and sold a couple dozen paintings by the time I was 12.
My images come from my imagination, exactly where, I don't know. I try to draw for about 2 hours a day. I do a stream of consciousness type drawing and then up comes a memory, an idea, and or an image and I find myself putting together a sort of collage of thoughts. I try to boil the images down to their most symbolic forms, a kind of alchemy. I want my art to be archetypes of the human experience.
