The general theme of his work generally covers a passion as influenced by the masters of Modern art and the Impressionists and secondarily his Las Vegas experience. He use oil pastels as a main medium, is also comfortable with ink. He incorporates collages when he feels this would enhanced a piece of work, an example is “Fish and Newspaper.” He used a particular issue of the New York Times, which he considers the best newspaper in the world, when he completed this particular piece .
The artist is an ardent student and admirer of the Impressionists, Post-Impressionists and the interim and subsequent movements that followed. These include Cubism, Expressionism (German), Abstract Expressionism, Pointillism,Surrealism, Fauvism, Futurism and Modernism. He is conversant with artists of these and other intervening periods, not excluding some of the more current artists. These admiration is often richly reflected in his use of color schemes and line renderings of his pieces of work. He believes that Pablo Picasso is the greatest artist of the 20th Century, because he not only opened so many doors and broke so many grounds in the presentation of modern art. He achieved these because of the longevity of his painting years.
About Giclee Print

In the art world it connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. Giclee prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. Modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclee prints are sometimes mistakenly referred to as Iris prints, which are 4-Color ink-jet prints from a printer pioneered in the late 1970s by Iris Graphics.
