He’s an enigma… his paintings, when seen as a body of work, would appear to be the work of a dozen uniquely different artists. Early influences were wildly diverse in their approach to the visual arts. His friend and mentor was noted artist John C. Clymer
He uses a variety of styles, mediums and techniques with subjects that reflect his wide range of interests. Many paintings utilize subtle colors; delicate details and unusual sensitivity…while others are very contemporary, brilliantly colored, bold design and startlingly direct. Others are very realistic and some are surprisingly abstract.
