In the world of art, my paintings and drawings have been described as having a contemporary, surreal narrative and visionary attitude, which I have cultivated over the last forty years. Recently, with the addition of spirit poles, I have extended my experiences and visions into the realm of sculpture. My art continues to evoke the relationship between elements surrounding mankind's spiritual and physical being in a symbiotic coexistence between the past, present and future. These works of art intend to transcend our everyday existence, reflecting a constantly altered universe.Through use of vibrant color, intuitive design and iconic references, my visionary images combine to create art which is wholly new and refreshing. All is phantasmagoric!
