San Francisco, CA - United States

Description

I am a painter and a photographer currently focusing on large scale public murals. My painting ranges from plein air landscapes, to city scenes, and still life. My photography includes landscapes, city scenes, still life, food, fashion, travel, aerial, abstract emotions, cultural events, to documentary, and street photography. The quality of light, composition and interpretative style can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. Seeing beauty in the simplest things and expressing my vision through art enriches my life and those around me.

I’ve lived in San Francisco for 34 years. Born in Miami Fl. & graduated from Columbia College with a BFA in painting & photography. I also lived for two years in London where I studied art & Italian at the City Literary Institute. I studied drawing, painting, printmaking, & art history at the Rutherford School of Art in Malaga, Spain. Most of my career has been as a 2d/3d/ digital artist/animator for games with a focus on UI/UX which I also applied to the automotive industry for 2 years designing dashboard displays for VW. I taught art at The Art Institute San Francisco & Expression College for Digital Art for 4 years. I freelance as a photographer and & continue to paint. I own a Gallery/Photo Studio in San Francisco and am currently painting large scale public murals.

Artist statement

My interest in art comes from my curiosity & fascination with the world around me ranging from the human condition, to nature, urban environments, & how light effects our perception of the world around us. I work in a range of styles & mediums from painting, to photography, drawing, as well as digital illustration & animation. I am predominantly a representational artist, but I also enjoy expressing emotions & concepts abstractly.
My motto is “It’s all about Light” in that how something is lit, and the quality of light can turn the ordinary into something extraordinarily magical. Through composition, selective focus, color, pattern, rhythm, repetition, and light quality I bring to life subjects that many may initially overlook to express my appreciation for the world around me and bring the viewer to a deeper state of mind that effects their emotions and how they think of the subject My subject matter ranges, from landscapes, city scenes, still life, food, fashion, travel, aerial, abstract emotions, cultural events, to documentary, and street photography.
