I consider myself an American painter. I'll go further.
I'm a regionalist right down to the neighborhood level.
Very often, the subject and setting of my work can be traced to my current home in Rochester, New York.
What I like to find and explore are aspects of American culture, our most common experiences, those facets our life that seem to hide in plain sight. I want to reintroduce them boldly and dramatically to examine our notions of community and to celebrate the diversity that challenges us yet makes us stronger.
