Self-taught painter from New York City. I’m inspired to create in a few ways, so I made three galleries to organize my work (a fourth shows collaborations I’ve worked on). Occasionally images form in my mind that I bring to the canvas (visions + ideas). At other times, the creativity is quick and spontaneous expression (the free line). Then there’s what I see (outer world). This method tends to result in scenes at the intersection of the man-made and nature. Sometimes I work by memory, and sometimes out at the site. All processes involve the mind, hand, and eyes. Visions originate in the mind, the free line is driven by the hand, and the paintings of outer world start out in the eyes.
