Announcement   My paintings are modern, contemporary, joyful, full of life, bold color and movement. Some have representational elements and some are fully abstract. Some are lighthearted and some profound. I have many painting techniques that I have developed though the years. My fluid paintings evolve spontaneously and are filled with tiny details that need to be seen close-up, so I take a lot of close-up photos. My geometrics have a cubist sensibility and a strong graphic element with gradated colors that form a harmonious whole. My textured paintings grew out my interest in mid-century color field expressionist painting. They all have a very imposing presence in person.

My spirituality and my interest in the eternal nature of life drive all my creative endeavors. You can see this in many of my paintings and their titles.

My art has evolved in a very interesting ways through many years of art-making. Hundreds of my paintings hang in homes and businesses all around the world. My paintings have been published in several brochures and publications for symposiums and other academic events. This usually comes about because my image evokes something related to the spirit of the endeavor. Often people in business will want one of my images as inspiration in the workplace, often involving themes such as creativity, a positive forward-looking spirit, a new beginning. One of my paintings was used for the cover of a college textbook. My paintings played a role in the 2007 movie "Universal Signs" in which the leading man was a painter.

I maintain a private studio in our home in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. Selling online provides me with a great amount of freedom and allows me to keep my prices very affordable. It also provides me the creative artistic freedom that is necessary to produce the art that is uniquely mine. My creative processes are very personal.

I list some of my giclee prints here on Etsy, most of my activity is on my website. Don't hesitate to contact me. Even when I am very busy, I will always respond within a day. Thanks so much for visiting!!

About

Original Abstract Acrylic Paintings from My Studio

When I was very young, my mother took a correspondence course in art history. From Michelangelo to Dali, those big color plates and books full of prints had an enormous impact on my young mind. I learned that I could draw well and had a strong desire to be an artist.
After moving to Pennsylvania, I studied Fine Art at Bucks County Community College and graduated with honors. While at Bucks, I was influenced by the late art historian Hafez Chehab, by his love for modern art, his enthusiasm for beautiful compositions, harmonious colors, lively brushwork. I was also influenced by the sculptures of Bernie Mangiaracina, and served an apprenticeship in bronze casting with Bernie. My work is still informed by his Brancusi-like, elegant curving sculptural forms.
I took courses and workshops at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, including portraiture, color theory and colorfield abstraction.
I focused on commissioned portraiture for many years, but my true love was always abstraction. In 2000-2004 I showed my abstracts locally in the Philadelphia and New York areas, including the Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Annual, and the Bowery Gallery in Chelsea. In 2005 I made the decision to show my paintings online only. This provides tremendous artistic freedom and allows me to stay in my studio, which gives me great joy.
My paintings have been featured on book covers and brochures, and played a role in the movie “Universal Signs” in which the leading man is an artist.
Today my inspiration comes from the sheer joy of painting and, as time goes by, is more and more connected to my spirituality.

Welcome! I'm a full time self-employed artist from Willow Grove, PA, USA. I sell my original paintings and canvas giclee prints online-only, directly to my collectors. Most of my sales are through my website. I keep a selection of giclee prints here on Etsy.

I work in acrylic and oil on canvas. My poured paintings are very fluid and free. My geometric paintings are very lively with suggestions of cubism. Some paintings are very textured and some are smooth. All original paintings are on cotton canvas which is gallery wrapped around wooden stretcher bars. I paint the sides black, apply multiple coats of varnish to the whole painting and wire the backs so you can hang your paintings right out of the box.
