EMERGING CONTEMPORARY ARTIST
American, b. August 14,1962, Joliet, IL
Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, Pop Realism, Street Art, Contemporary and Conceptual art are major influences on my work. I draw additional inspiration from the work of artists Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cy Twombly, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Christopher Wool, Ed Ruscha, Jenny Holzer, Niki Hare, Robert Szot & Bansky.
My work is characterized by vibrant colors and/or bold graphic words and phrases. I seek to create art that confronts you; is self-evident through color, space, shape, and typography all in an effort to create an engaging and thought provoking visual experience.
