"Indelible Impression" - 36" x 48"

“Indelible Impression” - A lasting, meaningful and memorable impact by someone or something. This piece about and dedicated to 9 people who have a powerful and significant affect on me and my life.

A couple of months ago, in a moment of reflection, my mind went to the many relationships I’ve had over the years - parents, grandparents, siblings, girlfriends, wife / ex-wife, co-workers, bosses, etc. We all encounter many people in our life and form different types and levels of relationships. In my time here, I’ve been fortunate to meet a lot of really interesting, fun, smart and kind people. But, there are those select few that have had a truly lasting, meaningful, memorable and deeply significant impact on my life. I’m sure everyone out there has those special people in their lives.

With the exception of one, who passed away many years ago, all of these special people are still in my life. Two of them recently came back into my life which I’m grateful for. It was in this moment of reflection that inspired this painting. My goal was to create strong and distinct marks with each of the brushstrokes and color palette to capture the indelible impression these people have had on my life.

Contemporary Abstract Expressionism

Self-taught contemporary abstract artist from Nyack, NY, working in the oil medium. In 2017, I walked away from a 20-year career in advertising to pursue my passion for art, to be true to myself.

Discovering my art has been a long and winding journey. Visually and creatively oriented from a young age, my interest in art increased in high-school and college through a series of painting, ceramics and design classes. However, fear and self-doubt set in. Pursuing a career in art wasn’t clear, confidence was lacking and the expectations to a be a successful “corporate citizen” were too great. I succumbed to the “norm” and pursued a path I felt would please others.

As my career in advertising unfolded, discontent increased. I fell victim to addiction which took everything from me, nearly my life. Starting over in 2010, I entered recovery and have been clean and sober since. While still working in advertising, I rekindled my artistic interests. Immediately, a sense of joy and peace returned. Over the next several years, I devoted more time to my artwork. In 2017, I committed to pursuing my dream of being a full-time working artist.

Painting allows me to express my innermost feelings, to be at peace, fearless. My art is my truth – a thoughtful, vulnerable, and genuine expression of who I am. It tells my story of pain and darkness to hope and freedom. Life experiences, consequences of addiction, finding recovery, discovering my purpose - all serve as focal points for my work.

Bold, vibrant colors are at the center, reflecting my passion for the fullness of life. Color exploration and use is focused on blending, movement, and shapes. Combined with precise line work and bold marks, I seek to capture the depth of emotions and meaning to tell my story of overcoming.

Painting awakens my spirit. Free and with an open heart, I’m able to communicate and connect in the purest fashion. I paint to share my journey, to bare my soul, to heal and to inspire.
