My gallery is divided into the various subjects in which I work. The overlying theme is the split realism of images which are woven as a tapestry through the work. My studio consists of hundreds of photos, papers and objects which blend into the art, some painted, some real.

If there is a piece of art which speaks to you, let me know. I love speaking with my collectors and art lovers. My work is available for sale and I can also create works specifically for you.

 

The Science of Beauty

The earth, it's boundless systems, tightly woven together to fill each need and supply. The wondrous anatomy of the thousands of animals and integral relationships of each plant, animal and element. How we are interrelated is in one word amazing.

My art explores the relationship between man and his environment. Taking what has been discarded and reusing to create works of art which focus on the beauty of nature. Inspired by the intricate makings of insects, plants and animals, I focus on each detail, their colors and textures.

Repurposing Smithsonian magazines, their emphasis on the world makes another statement. Each strip and square, sometimes painted over, illustrates the intricate world in which we survive, with each species fiercely dependent on others. This regulation is seen in the repetition and counted lines and dots which grace the work.

This exploration is a testament to those who work to leave the world better than we found it. Each person doing their part to create a more beautiful space.

The second section is "Trip to the Orient". This is my ongoing series inspired by my trip to Japan and an old photo album of China from 1934. Blending current with traditional scenes, it is almost a timeless look at some of the most unique cultures.
