Inspired by visits to Roman ruins and archeological museums, I began creating vector illustrations and mixed media pieces that combine geometric abstraction and traditional renderings. I’m looking to capture the haunting atmosphere that permeates among the ruins.
Ghosts of Rome.
Dying Daughter of Niobe in Pompeii depicts the statue "Dying Daughter of Niobe" in color against the ghostly backdrop of Pompeii and Vesuvius.
I was born in Salem, MA and raised in the Greater Boston area. My youth was spent in ice rinks, but I managed to discover my passion for making art. In 2001, I earned a BFA in Graphic Design with Honors from Montserrat College of Art. During the following year, I began work on the “space-ism” concept which produced the first piece for the Icon Series. The concept focuses on creating planes of space within two dimensional artwork while simplifying the imagery to geometric shapes. In addition, I produce drawings, mixed media pieces, and work as a graphic designer. Since 2003, my wife and I have been stuck in the terrifying traffic of Southern California.
