Santa Barbara, CA, USA
I have been expressing my joy of art with paint, shapes and colors
since I was very young. I started as a painter, evolved into a photographer, and eventually began hand painting on my Cibachrome
prints over 30 years ago. Before Photoshop I found a way to express
a new magical reality with the vivid colors I saturated into my photos.
Now I scan my one-of-a-kind hand-painted prints and my library of
35mm Kodachrome color transparencies taken over the last 45 years, and I paint, collage and enhance them with Photoshop, creating my
own idyllic world!
I produce archival museum quality chromogenic prints, archival glossy canvas artworks, and my favorite new digital medium: archival printing
My art has been shown worldwide in many solo exhibitions including:
Butler Institute of American Art, Ohio; Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard, CA; Laguna Art Museum, CA; Petersen Automotive Museum, LA, CA;
LA County Natural History Museum, CA; Monterey Museum of Art, CA; Nancy Hoffman Gallery, NYC, NY; L’Image Gallery, Rome, Italy; Louis Stern Gallery, West Hollywood, CA; Wall Space, Santa Barbara, CA.
I have also been included in countless group exhibits and Art Fairs around the world over the last 30 years, and collected by museums, foundations, corporations and individuals worldwide. Numerous magazine articles,
magazine and book covers, two museum exhibition catalogues and
two books have been published of my art, Garden Tales and Car Tales.
