Educated as an engineer, I’ve created artworks that certainly evolved, more like matured, over time. My Hometown roots begin in Dayton, OH. But now I call Maryland/DC my second home. I truly believe there is really no other place on earth with such an eclectic vibe of arts, museums, history, and culture. A constant source of nutrition that feeds my creativity.
My artistic narrative is simple: personifying emotions, beliefs and social concepts through ethnic patterns, shadings, and mediums across the full spectrum of color.
I hope you receive my pieces fully, as much as I enjoy creating them.

Thank you very much for sharing with me your new work. I would like to let you know that I like the "Inside Man" for the fact that it achieves the quality of “wholeness”. Every element is in tune with and enhances a thematic goal. The simplicity offers richness at the same time. The geometric elements form jointly a strong architectural framework for the image. This is just my feelings in responding to your outstanding work. It is by no means a critique, which I have no experience with. Thank you and congratulations!

It seems that you’re fully flexing both the creative and analytical parts of your brain/soul. Fantastic.

I have taken time to visit your website. Since more than twenty years experience as art historian, I have seen a lot of artworks and sometimes I think, there is nothing really new what can astonighsing me. But your works are very special. I don’t want to use the word amazing, because everybody is always using it. No, I think your artworks are magic. Full of colors and energy on the one hand - very structured, under control - on the other hand.

Hi TLBarwick, I checked out your artwork. How would you describe your style? For me it has a connection to the Ancestors while also speaking to the future. I find it simple, geometric, and strong. It’s kinda scary too maybe because of the dark colors.
