I use a process I learned from a frame-maker in Venice, Italy. He was repairing a baroque frame and I asked what he used to fill the mould. I was given this formula and now use it in every painting I create. This process is the same that is used on the walls of churches for frescos that last hundreds of years. I use this process as well as found items that give a texture that can not be duplicated and gives me an unexpected journey every time. With my interior design background I use what I was taught, but it is only second to what I feel.
I want to create emotion, to touch the lives of people that enjoy my work. If a piece doesn't move you in some way it may as well be paint on the side of a house.
I love art, I love to express what is inside me and to have a personal presence in people's lives. I am also an entertainer, a mentalist and perform aboard some of the most amazing cruise ships in the world. I paint small pieces when at sea and in dressing rooms backstage in theaters. I have two of my paintings that will be on the set of the movie " The Bastards" with Owen Wilson and Glen Close due out in early 2017. I was also a technical adviser to the hit TV show The Mentalist sending in ideas of how to make Simon Baker look more like a real mentalist.
