I define my art as Modern Expressionism. I have developed my own style of painting my whole life, professionally for the last twenty years. I’m a painter who is inspired by local scenic landscapes and cityscapes, and also Iconic "Rock'n Roll," and other genre of music legends. My paintings are primarily done outside. I use color and paint to create a spontaneous dynamic focusing on energy and color hopefully so the viewer will enjoy what they are seeing. It is I think a very modern and self-developed style that has been evolving throughout my lifetime, painting on location around the United States now mostly in California and primarily Venice Beach, the last stand for free spirits in a Country that has become obviously to Corporately commercialized and basically has left artists like me behind. My painting style has been influenced by Impressionism and early European Expressionist painters. However, I feel my style has developed into its own unique evolution that has become recognizable by my fans!
