Summary of Content

I have been making art since I was a child. I cannot remember a time when I wasn't.

My art has matured over the last four decades and today I create fine art that challenges convential aesthetic sensibilities.
I exercise a number of thought experiments in the genre of the Post-Modern, MetaModern, ReadyMyth, and Contemporary Art artistic sandboxes.
The comprehensive resume listed below is a historical record of where and when I have exposed my art.
