ABOUT

I have been studying and creating art my entire life and was a full time student of fine art and design in Southern California. I am greatly inspired by impressionist masters like Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, and Paul Gauguin as well as expressionism artists like Vincent van Gogh, Wassily Kandinsky, and many others. I have worked as a jeweler for more than 20 years, and then moved into filmmaking which took me to working on movie sets. I spent 5 years traveling around the globe, spending a good deal of time in Mexico and Southeast Asia, filming and editing projects for a number of clients.

After 15 years in the film world, I have now managed to merge my love of both painting and filmmaking by creating AR (Augmented Reality) components to my physical oil and cold wax paintings. The AR creations I make are also available as NFTs (non fungible tokens). My artwork can be found in collections around the world including permanent collections in the US, Canada, England, Serbia, Austria, Ireland, Indonesia, South Africa, and Mexico.

Besides painting, I love cooking, good tequila, animals, and international travel.
