Raised in Houston, Texas, I brought my life-long interests in design and math to Cambridge, Massachusetts for my undergraduate and graduate college years at MIT. I received the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Art & Design and Master of Architecture concentrating in design. I have practiced and worked in the profession of architecture in Chicago, Dallas, Cambridge, Omaha, and Austin. My wife, a Connecticut native, and I now live near Austin, Texas.
Working primarily with acrylics, I develop relationships between forms and colors with a sense of motion, tension, balance, and with the intention of communicating a design logic emanating from the subconscious. Of primary importance in my design are the concepts of line, continuation, juxtaposition, intersection, edge, angularity, texture, and freedom creating a three dimensional perception. It has been compared to the works of Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Joan Miró. Others have described my work as possessing qualities of celebration and playfulness thereby engaging viewers with associative interaction. Also described as non-derivative, modern and with a flavor of modern primitive, my art conveys unexpected warmth in its associative abstract expression, resulting in the creation of transcendent associations and emotions for those experiencing each piece. Art is said to be a spiritual endeavor; I agree wholeheartedly.
My work has been exhibited in Groton, Maynard, and Cambridge, Massachusetts as well as in Omaha, Nebraska and in Houston, Fredericksburg, Wimberley, Dripping Springs, Kyle, and Austin, TX. In addition to these public exhibits, works have been displayed privately in Belgium, California, Tennessee, Colorado, Nebraska, and Texas.
