Artist's Statement

I like to think that somehow, some of my fascination with creating abstract art has come from the love I have for my father as well as for the people I create my art for.  I started painting 10 years ago and have grown as an artist through experiences and formal training. I am an accomplished physicist who switched to art but still dabbles in physics.  The physics informs the art.  I am rarely without my tools of the trade since I began 10 years ago and these tools have been a tool in my learning and teachings in life.


I make abstract paintings that help me to reveal what I feel about the natural world: its colors shapes, textures, lines, and forms. My background in science supports my visual expressions on the canvas where my goal is to make a connection between myself and the observer. I hope my work inspires the observer, subconsciously or not, to develop his or her own special vision and see beauty where one might not even know to look. My mind is my brush and I use it to create images that transcend the ordinary. I must know exactly how each will visually express the thought that is painted on my canvas.

My years as a physicist have helped me refine and express to my collectors a myriad of visual concepts, thereby becoming a better artist. Now is the time for me to transcend the artistic world and let my paintings stand alone to resonate with new audiences.

In 2004,  I participated in a beautification project within the public school system in Harlem, NY. I painted a mural on the side of one of the grammar schools, right near Harlem Hospital.  I am also an active volunteer with the Free Arts NY organization.
