60s Work

"The 1960s drawings and paintings I created were spontaneous, intuitive creations...The art that influenced this early drawing style was the drawing of Egon Schiele and Rico LeBrun...I think of my sixties work as my angry kid phase. I would literally assault the surface with charcoal and brush."
