Annual Exhibitor List
My work is the product of my environment over the last 3 decades. Generally I've had a positive experience yet tend to be irked by frequent political & religious hypocrisy, general apathy (relating to war, the environment, fact-challenged pundits, etc.) & dogma of any stripe leading to social & spiritual tunnel vision. These themes are prevalent in many of my paintings although are often explored using satire & humor as opposed to a sledge hammer. Socio-political commentary, shaken not stirred.
