When I discovered the NASA photos of outer space I found a new world of color, movement, and abstract form that inspired me to paint in sweeping gestures and vibrant color.  I hope my paintings give you the same sense of wonder and joy they give me. My abstract paintings are always referential and some suggest skys. The real world is always with me, but these paintings allow me to leap into emotional brushwork and simplified forms.

These original paintings are signed and dated on the back. If you are interested in any of the art in this gallery, please click on the thumbnail to see where each can be purchased online.  I send a letter of provenance, which increases the value of the work; I ship free in the United States.
