you for visiting my online art gallery. I am a 66-year-old
self-taught artist. I began painting at age 13. In 1986,
I found a style of creating oil paintings on canvas
that felt right for me.
In 2003 with 060 'The
Birth of Peace', I began to incorporate naked females into my art. I began to consider these works of art dreamscapes where the female was the dreamer.
Most of the originals are located
in Albuquerque, New Mexico (About 15 are in Houston, Texas in storage.) and can be viewed by appointment.
You can contact me by the telephone number or email
address displayed on this website.
My art can best be categorized as combination of Visionary Art and Outsider Art. "Visionary art as defined for the purposes of the American Visionary Art Museum refers to art produced by self-taught individuals, usually without formal training, whose works arise from an innate personal vision that revels foremost in the creative act itself."
However, my art does not look like typical visionary art.
Those labeled as outsider artists tend to have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. Often, outsider art illustrates unconventional ideas, elaborate fantasy worlds or extreme mental states.
Therefore, my art should be categorized as
My art is intended to
be as interesting up close as it is from far away. It
uses black and white, primary and secondary colors for
emotion. It is intellectual in its hard line. Each painting
is full of icons and symbols and clearly contains a
message which I have appended to the detail of many
of the paintings.
