Artist Statment:

Now, on with the show….. thanks for taking a peek.
Where my works lives and breathes
As a traditional, non-digital illustrator/painter (no Photoshop, Illustrator or Corel ... just oil and on canvas), I have been commissioned by numerous publications from The New York Times to The Village Voice. For the last decade, I've been concentrating on painting larger canvases and exploring deadline/art director-free conceptual approaches.Ward-Nasse Gallery in Manhattan permanently holds a decade's representation of my work (with solo shows there in 2005 and 2007).Socio-political illustrative commentary ... shaken, not stirred.
