His influences include Victor Vasareley, Symbolic art work, Surrealist Philosophy, the Far East and Devotional Buddhism. He works with acrylic and airbrush on canvas and his thoroughly contemporary paintings have a slightly mystical feel to them.

One of his themes is the sophistication man acquires by looking outward and attempting to make progress inward. He has been commissioned to paint Chicago's skyline.
