ABOUT  ME

I am a self-taught abstract painter and artist, formerly an architectural and restoration engineer.  My artistic path began several years ago with a passion for urban sketching and figure drawing in watercolor and ink wash.  More recently, I began experimenting with traditional acrylic and fluid acrylic abstract painting. I primarily focus on expressive and textured geometric abstract, fluid acrylic and figurative paintings.

For me, creating art is primarily about the experimentation and exploration that occurs during the painting process. I enjoy working on large scale canvases most, while typically using untraditional tools and painting methods. My work often highlights interfaces of color, and typically includes varied textures, dynamic movement, and metallic accents.
