Favorite material to work with?
Acrylic and a lot of gloss gel medium.
What themes do you pursue?
There are no specific themes to my work. Each painting is its own visual story that transcends explanation through language. The process and the result is emotion and energy put forth in its rawest and purest form.
How many years as an artist?
Art school or self-taught?
Mana Fine Arts, Jersey City, New Jersey.
Prefer to work with music or in silence?
At times I work in silence and at others with Mozart; or at the other extreme, Eminem raging in the background.
Where can we find you outside of the studio?
Outside of the studio I’m hanging out with my daughter, Emmy. She also loves to paint and I love nothing more than to be her assistant!
If you couldn’t be an artist, what would you do?
If I couldn’t paint, and had the means, I would collect and/or advise people on what to collect.
Favorite contemporary artist?
What do you collect?
Recently I’ve been collecting work from a painter, Mia Brownell, and a sculptor, Jae Young Kim.
If you could only have one piece of art in your life, what would it be?
Only one painting- The Deep, by Jackson Pollock.
Is painting dead?
Is creativity dead? There’s your answer.
My 10 foot wide squeegee.
