What artists influenced your work the most?
Although I’ve admired many artist such as J.M.W. Turner, Wassily Kandinsky, Edward Hopper, and many of the Impressionists like Monet, Degas, and Cézanne. My most important inspiration has come from Ellsworth Kelly, Mark Rothko, and other Abstract Expressionists. Also I seem to derive inspiration from many of the wonderful artists I follow on my Instagram account. Inspiration seems to be everywhere.
How did you move from photography to very abstract work?
I have always been drawn to the abstract in life. I think one of my first epiphanies came when I was a freshman in college and was in a campus gallery where I saw a very abstract piece and couldn’t take my eyes off of it. All I can remember of the work is that it was mostly red and had what looked like a hidden face buried in the paint. I must have looked at the art work for a half an hour. Even during my photography days I was always experimenting and trying to make photos that looked more abstract. So it has been something that has always excited me.
If I want to buy one of your works, is there a way to pay for it over time?
I use PayPal and when you click the PayPal “Order Now” button one of the purchase options is to pay with PayPal credit. You will have to check with PayPal for their requirements.
How long does it take until I can get my art work?
The printing studio that I work with uses Diasec artisan crafted acrylic prints. This process is very labor intensive and usually requires 2 to 3 weeks before your work of art is ready to ship. Once the work is ready to ship, I will contact you with the shipping information.
Do you have works of art that are less expensive?
Yes! You can view my open editions at Fine Art America where you can purchase my digital art for as little as $50. I will continue to add additional digital art to my Fine Art America open edition shop
What defines an Open Edition?
An open edition means that there is no limit on the number of works of a particular art work that can be sold. Where as with the digital art on my web site, I have set a limit of 10 works for each art work.
I liked some of your older work. Is there a way to purchase that work?
Yes, you can go to my Fine Art America shop. I will start showing my older work there soon.
Do you offer online chat?
Yes, the icon on the lower right of the page allows you to contact me immediately. If I am away from the studio, you can leave your name and email address and I will follow up with you as soon as I get back.
