Fine Art Paintings

     After a decade of photographing people I started to study the work of Andy Warhol's photo silkscreens and taught myself this process and offered it to photography clients as an alternative to the traditional photographic portrait.

     The photo silkscreen process involved silkscreen ink and a high contrast black and white version of the subjects face screened (through silk) onto the pre-painted paper or canvas. 

     The idea was a success and I did many silkscreens during an twelve year period of time. The process afforded me the opportunity to mix paint, formulate and blend colors. It essentially taught me a strong foundation for painting. 

     I'm infatuated with colors and how they combine with one another. I'm in love with nature, as well as cities. I draw my colors from natural surroundings. I would entitle the majority of my art as abstract landscapes. I also like to paint pure abstracts, nudes and city landscapes. I want to be reminded of what nature has given me when I look at my paintings; a sense of peace, tranquility and awe.
