Artists who inspire me include Hieronymus Bosch, Francisco de Goya, Odilon Redon, Giotto, Franz Marc, Edgar Ende, Leonor Fini, Remedios Varo, Arnold Böcklin, Giorgio de Chirico and Max Ernst. I enjoy working in a variety of media including oil, acrylic, chalk pastel, char-coal, colored pencil and clay. Paintings found in private collections all across the U.S.A. as well as Russia, England, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Australia, Greece, Sri Lanka and Kazachstan.
My work reflects an inner fantastical world, often absurd and capricious, which stems from a lifelong fascination with the surreal. My inspiration is fueled by dreams and the idea of in-between realms where my reveries become a reality. I create art out of necessity. Not only do I create art for the simple fact that it brings me plenteous joy but also as a means to disassociate from the banal. I strive to liberate my imagination when creating my imagery and to simply allow the unconscious to express itself fully.  As a self-taught painter I continually explore new ways to develop my technique as well as deepen my emotional expression. There are no rules as to what to feel or how to react to my work.  My art comes without instructions. I merely attempt to translate a personal vision into an outer reality.
