Original Art, Silk-Screened Posters & Prints


I’m a fan of bold lines, and I make original art with solid design and vibrant colors. I’m also extremely connected to places, and a lot of my original art and prints reflects that.

I was strongly influenced by the Harvey Kurtzman era of MAD magazine (back when it was actually a comic book) and cartoonists like Don Martin, Robert Crumb and Al Hirschfeld. I taught myself how to draw back in elementary school and started painting later, melding cartoon sensibilities with an appreciation for original art that shows wit and dash.

As a kid, I absorbed the comedy of Steve Martin, the Smothers Brothers and George Carlin. I love a well-told story and a solid, honest laugh as much as a good painting. Maybe more.

I’ve gotten around. After growing up in Michigan I lived in Chicago, Palo Alto, San Francisco, now New York, and part time in New Orleans. All three US coasts. Like I said, I love places (it’s called “topophilia”), and I infuse that love into a lot of my original art.
