Creating from the Unknown

Art is something I am and not something I do. 

My visual design sense comes from my origins. I dive into my root history, where it all began. As an altar boy growing up in the small town of Shamokin, Pennsylvania, I spent a lot of time in church. The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, with its bright Byzantium gold and high design line took on great meaning for me. 

The intoxicating other worldliness fragranced with frankincense and myrrh drew me to line. Line gives me a sense of movement, which metaphors the movement of life. I get a sense of logic, my own logic.

The artwork I do is a synthesis of painting, installation, sculpture and photography. My art mainly consists of paintings on shaped canvases and sculptural components, which take on the intent of a spirituality.


Growing up in Pennsylvania, I was influenced by Western Art. San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA, is where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree (BA), in art studio. This place is where I learned an Eastern Art sensibility. I completed my Master of Fine Arts degree (MFA), in studio art, in the “Arts and Consciousness” program at John F. Kennedy University, Berkley, CA. So I have been blessed with two hemispheres in the approach to art. 

New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, NM - John Slade Eli House, New Haven, CT - Mexico City USA art exchange, Merchants Exchange Corporation, San Francisco, CA, and private collections in California, New Mexico, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida, New Jersey and New York City, are some places that house my work in their permanent art collections.

Through my life experience and formal training as an artist, I continue to develop a personal spiritual experience, from the most profound levels of human consciousnesses. This I find is the foundation for truly significant artwork. I believe that art has the ability to be fun while also being transformative and inspirational.
