"I paint from the inside out–not necessarily things as they are, but how I FEEL about them.
"My paintings are my stories and how I feel about them. New stories are always emerging. I am learning and my life is changing constantly.
“For me painting is all about exploration and discovery--searching for new ways to interpret what I see and feel. I love to turn minor everyday natural occurrences into an important moment in time.”

He studied with Swiss Kurt Hauert and Armin Hoffman, and Americans Sy Sillman (Joseph Albers’ associate) and Wolf Kahn.
