My passion has always been color and my primary inspiration the natural world around me. I have always leaned toward using contrasting, saturated color in my work, finding few colors, when presented properly that cannot be used together.  Their very conflict makes a statement and the result a narrative inviting the viewer to become intimately engaged.

My imagery is a personal expression but what you take from has equal validity.  My inspiration is merely a guiding force, not an explanation.  Each piece offers a moment of awareness, a journey presented in a carefully fashioned interplay of pigments, movement, and texture extending reality by exaggeration and highlighting its passion.  The results demand a deeper examination and beckon you into a world of vivid allusion. Whether the theme is social, emotional or psychological, each composition demands analysis. Only then does it reveal the intricate world of imagery and symbolism crafted into each it.

When asked to describe my work I call it Digital Fusion or Digital Painting and my style as Digital Expressionism. 

Digital fusion or digital painting is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques are applied through the use of a computer, a digitizing tablet, and graphics software. Together they offer a virtual canvas with many of the tools of a traditional visual artist.

Digital photo-composites, as they are sometimes called, are far more than blending or collaging of multiple images. Each piece, often containing thirty or more images, results in a vision of the world as seen by the artist.

While Digital Art is still in its infancy it has already become a powerful art form that continues to expand the possibilities of traditional photography.

Having a literary background I find my strongest influences are the images painted by the literary works of Emerson, Whitman, Thoreau, Cummings, Beckett, and Bach. My strongest artistic inspirations have always been the works of Jackson Pollack, Salvador Dali, and Claude Monet.
