Raised in the city of Washington, DC, Damien was fascinated by Fine Art and Architecture from a very early age. Studying Architecture in NYC and Vermont, he relocated to New Orleans to focus solely of his abstract art. Using acrylics, oils and mixed mediums, his work has developed into what are often referred to as abstract skyscapes. Overlying textures and deep color contrasts that are seemingly minimalistic, his work is actually thoughtfully finessed and complex, the details becoming more apparent each time the work is viewed.
Works are in the Worldwide Collection of Hotels, Restaurants, Celebrities, Private Corporations and Private Educational Institutions. My work has also appeared in numerous Interior Design Publications.

I think people underestimate the restorative qualities that art brings into one’s life. Color and movement in abstract art can produce a feeling of hope and optimism. Even in my darkest pieces a moment of hope emits a slight beckoning from the shadows. The forces of nature- water, air, the sky and atmosphere, and light over dark are primary references in my abstract works.
