Peoplescapes are inspired by my fascination with people from all over the globe. I create a visual narrative by weaving together characters, places and current events. With a skewed photojournalist’s style, I try to capture our important historical period. Each painting, while filled with considerable detail, unfolds uniquely, without plans or sketches and evolve as I follow my universal language.

Planeslashing involves cutting through painted canvases and transforming them into a unified work.  By tearing down one or more existing works at a time, manipulating them, and then painting into the re-configured whole, adding found objects and sculpture; portions of the underlying picture(s) remains intact, resulting in a cohesively transformed multi-dimensional piece.

Plein air landscape painting is a meditative and instructional process that forces me to observe with a sharper eye in preparation for "peoplescapes" created from my imagination. I've carried my paints around the world working in plein-air.

In the modern medical mall waiting room: a young man's thumbs are in a cast from tweeting, another man wears his racing
jacket coated with health insurance logos; receiving stations are separately designated according to body parts,
and angels of comfort gather to help ease those on the way out.  The dangling soldier is emblematic of the increased
number of post combat suicides. Nearby a management meeting on healthcare cuts is fueled by a hot air balloon, while the
female diagram shows where funds will be depleted.  Above the drug store, a host of professionals participate in a woman's
medical decisions, while babies are being incubated in the lab.
