Note from the Artist

My paintings depict fading American icons, an endeavor that has led me
on a journey of rich and vivid memories and fortuitous treasures.
In preserving the majesty of the past, I endow each moment with light and atmosphere,
capturing the essence of a bygone culture and the lives that have graced it.
