Raised in Houston, Texas, I brought my life-long interests in design and math to Cambridge, Massachusetts for my undergraduate and graduate college years at MIT. I received a Bachelor of Science in Art & Design and a Master of Architecture with a concentration in design. Among my art professors were Otto Piene, Richard Filipowski, Muriel Cooper, and Wayne Anderson. I have practiced and worked in the profession of architecture (including interior architecture) in Chicago, Dallas, Cambridge, Omaha, and Austin. My wife, a Connecticut native, and I now live near Austin, Texas.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with
Others have described my work as possessing qualities of celebration and playfulness thereby engaging viewers with associative interaction. Also described as non-derivative, modern and with a flavor of modern primitive, my art conveys unexpected warmth in its associative abstract expression, resulting in the creation of transcendent associations and emotions for those experiencing each piece. Art is said to be a spiritual endeavor and I agree wholeheartedly.
Some of my favorite artists are Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miró, Jackson Pollock, Thomas Hart Benton, Stuart Davis, Julie Mehretu, Gustav Klimt, and Johannes Vermeer among many others.

Working primarily with acrylics, I develop relationships between forms and colors with a sense of motion, tension, balance, and with the intention of communicating a design logic emanating from the subconscious. Of primary importance in my design are the concepts of line, continuation, juxtaposition, intersection, edge, angularity, texture, and freedom creating a three dimensional perception.
