Following my service with the US Navy, I enrolled in and subsequently graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Now, as I enjoy “retirement” I have the luxury of being able to spend more time in studio doing what I love best - creating art that’s both spiritual and mysterious - I find myself immersed in a whole new world. The ‘business’ of art has transformed into the ‘joy’ of art for me.

I love to paint mystical revelations and spiritual illuminations. Birds, butterflies, dragonflies, flowers, trees, forests, landscapes as well as exotic places and faces fascinate me. By combining elements of the physical and spiritual world together, I paint dream-like, ethereal pieces. They create a visual story that can bring you to a pleasant mindset, a better overall feeling, or even make a spiritual connection.

Every day for me, starts with a one on one conversation with the Master Artist. I pray. I give thanks for the gift of art given to me among other things that I am thankful for. I also pray that my hands are guided to create what he has intended for me to paint. It keeps me excited to see what will be on the next canvas.

“Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.” – Andre Gide
