“Abstract Art is a mystery of poetry, color, light, and dance beyond words.”
“Powerful colors define inner strength.
It was in Amsterdam, The Netherlands that I was raised, thus surrounded by some of the world’s most prestigious museums and cultural art movements. Those treasures made an indelible impression on my innate creative talent. At the age of thirteen, I sold my first painting and pursued later my interest in art at the Academy for Visual Arts.
My apparent keen awareness of aesthetic principals continued to play a dominant role as my career evolved which included being the co-owner of a popular fine art gallery in Atlanta, GA and as the proprietor of fine dining restaurants which showcased high quality original fine art.
Previously I was a corporate executive and owned an advertising company with major clients in northern Europe for graphic artwork. Since I have become a full-time artist my highly-acclaimed paintings have found their way into many private collections in Europe, the U.S., and Panama, Central America.
My aim is to take viewers on imaginary journeys as they traverse and unravel the many robust visual layers of my paintings. It is my wish that my paintings invite viewers to explore and make new visual discoveries.”
Renée Phillips, director of Manhattan Arts International, New York, NY commented, “His unique creative process imbues his art with a spontaneous profusion of color and depth. The artist’s use of vibrant hues, bold compositions, and animated brushwork reflect his joie de vivre. His dynamic contemporary landscape and abstract paintings celebrate the positive abundance that exists in the idealized natural world. He transforms his subjects to transcend their representational characteristics in favor of igniting the viewer’s emotional response to them.”
