Artexpo New York 2024

April 4 – 7, 2024

As a graphic designer turned fine artist, I bring a unique perspective to my work that is informed by 30 years of experience in the industry. My art represents a fusion of graphic design and traditional fine art techniques, resulting in a body of work that is diverse, innovative, and captivating.

My creative vision draws from a wide variety of styles and influences, allowing me to explore different themes and concepts in my art. I am particularly interested in the intersection between form and function, and how design principles can be used to create works of art that are both aesthetically pleasing and intellectually engaging.

Whether working in digital or traditional media, I am constantly experimenting with new techniques and materials, pushing the boundaries of my craft and exploring new avenues of creativity. My work is characterized by a bold use of color, texture, and form, which is often juxtaposed with more subtle elements to create a sense of balance and harmony.

Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to create work that is not only visually compelling but also thought-provoking, inviting viewers to engage with the ideas and themes that inspire my art. Through my work, I hope to contribute to a wider dialogue about the role of art and design in our lives and to inspire others to explore their own creative potential.
