This painting was inspired by my surroundings (I live on the coast of North Carolina). This type of coastal landscape is ever-changing and offers a constant variety of inspiration. It is an acrylic painting, finished with a satin varnish.

This is a one of a kind artwork. I always sign my work on the back and usually on the front as well. You will receive a certificate of authenticity with your piece of art.

In this mysterious series we explore the masks from cultures and civilizations from six continents dating back into ancient history. On a subtler note, we will also tap into the darker expressions of the subconscious mind, what Carl Jung referred to as "the shadow," and what I call "The Phantom Self." It is the "unknown face" that lies just beyond the threshold of consciousness. The ancients were well aware of this dark side of humanity and they incorporated it into their art. It is now our aim to bring many of these magnificent works back into the public eye so that we may appreciate the depth of their spirituality and creativity. Please enjoy.

The butterfly (along with the scarab beetle & dragonfly) is one of only a handful of insects that undergo a "complete" metamorphosis (others have only "partial or subtle" transformations). In this beautiful series we explore the multidimensional aspects of the majestic butterfly and its metaphorical implications for humanity along with its potential for a mass evolution.

I was experimenting with a more muted palette and erasing previous marks as I painted. It is cold and foggy this morning in Northern California, so it seemed like an appropriate image to post today!

Loosely based on "Ezekiel's Vision" (1518) by Raphael - this piece took a very different turn revealing a narrative from one of my favorite movie's of all time "The Wizard of Oz" The turn was completely unexpected and unintentional - but became very obvious as the work developed. The peice explores the  twists and turns, terrors and joys from the classic story of a girl's search for her yellow brick road.

I live at the beach were it hardly ever snows and friends have been posting snow photos on Facebook. Some of them were so beautiful, it inspired me to paint a snow scene. I believe this may be my first one? Anyway, I wanted a "pop" of color, soooo... the red Volkswagen.

I love working with amateur models because their modes of expression are vastly different from those of professional or polished models. The pros work hard to be what they think I want them to be. Amateurs can only be themselves. My goal is usually to capture the face in between the face they use when they are alone and the face they show to the world.

This model showed up at my studio with tons of lingerie and wanted to do what she considered a racy shoot with fishnets and garter belts. We shot on my roof with an extremely wide lens. At the end of the shoot, she drove away in a Tesla.

II was inspired by the Italian artist, Pozzo's ceiling fresco in St Ignatius in Rome when I was a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome. I have a large reproduction in the studio, from which I take ideas of color and composition while infusing my work with a contemporary flair.
