Paintings Drawings and More
I am an LA native. I have had an active art practice since 1991. My work has been seen as expressionism, social realism, historical painting, and surreal figuration. The backgrounds are often detailed dreamlike visuals, images within images juxtaposed with patterns. I have been called a painter, a sketcher, a social realist and a number of other things, lol but all good.I began as an outsider artist but through more community interaction and direct involvement in the art community, my work has grown in sophistication over the years. Labels help others to understand my work and define what I do. For me, painting and drawing everyday is my way of defining what I see, helping others to connect with me and themselves to make sense of it all.
