An early proponent of neo-expressionism, I painted anger and rage and violence, loneliness, isolation and burning, screaming sexual desire. During this period I began exhibiting work in Frank Marino’s Soho gallery. I also showed with Nico Smith in the East Village. Cookie Mueller featured me in one of her Details Magazine articles.
Then, in 1988, I stopped painting. My demons demanded I search for peace; I removed myself from the excesses of 80s nightlife and began a journey, through years of prayer and meditation, that led me, renewed, back to the canvas.
In 1998 I started painting again: exuberant landscapes, Eden, the Garden before Man. I started selling direct to individual collectors and corporations, including Pfizer Corporation and Kirkland & Ellis.
My studio is near the Fulton Ferry waterfront in Brooklyn. Having searched for God so many places I finally found her. She walks into my studio and takes off her clothes. My paintings celebrate Her. Thank God.
