"An orchestrated explosion of color and form and techniques" - Wayne Alan Brenner, The Austin Chronicle, February 2010

"Here are colorful abstractions – sharply defined and precisely rendered colorful abstractions – arranged to achieve uncommon balance or to affect a sort of kinesis via static articulation all stacked and staggered, the bright shapes often against a ground of collaged diagrams and texts. Imagine: The baby Jesus had a hissy fit while playing with Colorforms in an antique-book binder's studio, but (baby J being the divine infant, after all) the results were heavenly and wholly coherent." -Wayne Allen Brenner, The Austin Chronicle, September 2008

As an American Abstract Artist, I work in many contemporary media and images. Geometric and organic forms in oil and acrylic on large canvases; mixed media drawings on paper using acrylic, oil, charcoal, solvent transfer and collage.

Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1946, my family moved to Abilene, Kansas in 1957. After finishing high school in Chicago and four years service in the Air Force, I moved to Austin, Texas and graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1974. I have since lived in Austin with my wife and keep a studio in a renovated 100 year old house in downtown Austin.
