Food has always been one of the great passions of my life! It is curious that in all of the years that I have been painting, I never really thought about painting food.

An inspiration came to me in the form of an old friend. Chef Allen, one of Miami's best-loved chefs and restaurateurs, asked me to create a collection of paintings for his "Palate to Palette" series. My subjects, the eggplant, peppers, salmon, all became larger than life portraits with the ability to evoke emotion in the viewer. With the scale and intent of these paintings, I crossed over into Pop Art. "The Pepper" as Pop Icon! Textures are used in a new way and the "brushstroke" holds the ultimate power in the piece. It is the moment of completion, audacity, and energy when the artist and canvas convene for the last time.

This collection opens up the door for limitless possibilities and gives homage to two of the great passions of my life...FOOD and ART!
