Whether figurative or abstract, my creative approach is characterized by an energetic style translating my view of the human condition into a resolute visual composition. The resulting imagery has a vocabulary of visual elements that appears in my work with vigorous intensity.

Using ancient myths, classic texts, poetry or just societal interactions as a platform from which to explore themes of death and human foibles, the richness of my visual language takes the content to a less narrative context. My intention is to engage the viewer through the style and expressive qualities of my work.
I am also the creative director at Contraposto Art Studio. A decorative painting firm that creates original murals, wall finishes, and decorative textures for the interiors of stores, hotels, and high-end residences in the United States and in Europe. My studio works with renowned interior designers and architects such as Robert A.M. Stern and Stephen Sills.
