All looking is emotional.


art, place & passions

I'm a oil painter working in Brooklyn NY who specializes in paintings of place, landscape and architecture. My work is centered around interpreting the psychological aspects of place and space that I experience. The emotional connection we have to place and the powerful influence spaces have on the psyche is the overall theme which informs my approach; my paintings are explorations into these relationships. In a sense, my paintings of architecture and places are psychological portraits. 

Typically, my works are multi-layered and the finished painting will look as if it’s been around a long time. They often have an aged distressed look and there are many variations in color and surface texture which give them an antique feel. Layers of paint, scraped down, repainted and distressed are meant to echo the passage of time, organic decay and wear that define the character of a building or place.

I have a limited number of paintings available throughout the year and update the available section of this website when new works are finished. Feel free to contact me directly to check on upcoming available work. In most cases, works are completed in two cycles, Spring and Fall. Usually this is late May and early October.

Thank you for your interest in my work and I look forward to hearing from you.
