For the past 10 years I’ve been paying homage to Native Americans, outlaws and the lawmen of the West. As a portraitist, I’ve appreciated the personality of each character and translated it into paintings, drawings and sculpture. My work has been featured in The Hubbard Museum of the American West, Rio Riudoso Museum, The Albuquerque Museum and the Lincoln Historical Museum, in Lincoln, NM.

Artist Statement

I am a graduate of Tyler School of Fine Art in Philadelphia, PA. I hold a BFA, BS in Education. I worked in the private studio of Dean Boris Blai, who was a young assistant to August Rodin. Through his tutelage, I became adept at Greek sculptor’s interpretations of the human form. My academic training took me through Renaissance Art, French Sculpture, works of the great French Impressionists and Modern Artists. Through years of painting and sculpture, I achieved my own unique style, however nothing matched the profound change that overtook my work after relocating to the magnificence of the southwest. The topography, history, light and lore of New Mexico & the Southwest all came together as a collage to create a formidable impression. As you can see, the magnificent light and color of the Southwest still washes across my new work, which includes sculptural steel cut outs. I work full time in my studio in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
