I am a San Diego based commercial sign artist, designing and hand painting signs, making sculptures and painting murals for over 25 years—transforming the walls, floors and ceilings of fine restaurants, hotels, businesses, schools, and private residences throughout the United States and abroad.
I am inspired by what is new and unique in the world of design, and look for projects that will challenge my creative spirit to meet the desired outcome of a project. Whether designing logos or painting signs and murals in whatever the medium, I collaborate closely with designers, business and homeowners to help create an ambience to their space, and a statement that represents their personal and decorative style.
My fine art allows me to create a unique expression of experience that has its own language of form, color, space, emotion, and technique. I paint intuitively, exposing the vulnerability of the creative process while questioning assumptions about art, my audience, and myself.
It becomes more than color and form that is painted on a surface, it begins to tug at the unknown and speak to the hidden parts in all of us that are personal, private, and even mysterious. As in the lyrics of a song or a verse in a poem, I want my audience to pause, reflect, remember…and feel their own connection.
