I have been an artist my whole life. My earliest memories are drawing from books. The art I create is part of my essence and passions including: the female form, jazz, Marilyn, nostalgic, subjects related to the beach and ocean, landscapes, and fantasy. I experiment a lot using watercolors, acrylics, pastels, digital cameras, printers and computers. My art has been described as "physiologically penetrating"
I have been making art of my muse Doe Gentry for the past 25 years. It is a true artistic collaboration. All the images of the fantasy women are her.
My love of jazz music has produced a series of art of the giants of jazz including Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and others from the golden age of jazz from the 1950’s
Family is very important to me, so I’ve produced over the years a series of art called “Nostalgic”. It is mixed media, using photography, watercolor and color ink. Using my old family photos I’ve made large scale nostalgic art of family life from the 1920’s to the 1940’s.
Marilyn Monroe is a American icon and I’ve been fortunate enough to have been given access and copyright permission of 3 Marilyn photographers archives to produce my art of her using their photos as a bases for the pieces.
I live right near the beach in Santa Monica California and I long distance swim in the ocean year round so my art reflects that with different series of beachscape art.
