Fine Art Painer and Print Maker

Category: Art / Creative
I am a painter in the San Francisco Bay Area and have exhibited nationally. Recently, I have had three one-person exhibitions and a three-person show. My work is abstract and is based on reflections that are further manipulated in a computer to intesify color, distort shapes and lines. This creates an "abstract reality" that creates an illusion, a fusion of light, a magic reality that is more intense than the real.
