My paintings give form to memories, dreams, and daydreams. They represent the evolution of living through trauma,
beginning with the experience itself — through the gray aftermath — and finally to a "regrowth" period when remembrances
are diminished and replaced with the healing energy of an enriched existence.
I am always "on the lookout" for metaphorical images that flash into my mind's eye in relaxed moments — most commonly while listening to music, or before falling asleep.
I paint with my fingers, which gives the work a spontaneous feeling that closely approximates what I see in my head.

Lauderdale, Florida. In 2021, his work was published in the British literary journal Epoch Press.
