He has been producing visual art in the Detroit area since 1968, and this includes producing artwork using a variety of different media. In his art work his goal is to bring the viewer back to the experience, again and again. As simply as possible, to create a sense of mystery using space, and light.
Both Guastella & Teachworth have extensive records of national, regional as well as local one-artist and group exhibits in southeastern Michigan since 1975. Their works are included in public, corporate and personal collections. They both have an active studio and work in a variety of scale and media, by executing fresh new abstraction in a historical context.
