BRIEFLY The painter should never describe his paintings- ever - for any reason. The art has to do all the talking- but off the record I often say "industrial figurative."

A native of the Pacific Northwest, I work on a paper surface on top of canvas with a strong graphic element including typography and atmospheric graphs

All are worked into the mix a s compositional elements. Depending on the light, and mood of the viewer, it is possible to see something new with every viewing.

I am told my technique of applying and manipulating paint is unorthodox. The surface is pushed, pulled, scratched, scraped, and "attacked," before I then use an industrial belt sander to grind away at the results.

And I build my own frames out of recycled cedar and industrial material.
