I began creating art in my High School years, after taking a number of art courses I began to develop my own style of drawing that I found I enjoyed creating. I have been pursuing this approach during the following years. Recently I have begun experimenting with wood as an artistic medium and also the use of a computer router for design engraving. Since I have only a relative small number of compositions scanned and fully digitized the works displayed on this site are not a full representation of the corpus of my work.
A great deal of what I draw is abstract line drawings, sometimes with color and sometimes kept black and white. While drawing and composing pieces I typically either try to abstract a specific subject, or simply play with the intersecting of lines and textures. For example I find I am very drawn to the shape composition of arthropods, some insects, and sea life in general. Also I really like using space and star-scapes as backgrounds.
There is a sort of binary thought process that goes on for me while drawing. There is me thinking of maps and the geologic and geographic interaction of shapes and textures and there is what I think of as the biological element. Simply but I am trying to envision and the draw a sort of none realistic combination of a landscape with its rivers mountains, cities and other human infrastructure with the different but at times similar layout of a large organism, a biological example being a whale, and a none biologic one being a star-ship. I was always really attracted to science fiction visually as a child an much of that was the images of massive star ships that are part of that genre, and that visual influence shows in some of my work. Some pieces of mine are intentionally meant to be enormous space craft traversing the cosmos.

Anyway blahblah blah....blah! I could go on about this forever, any questions or comments please direct to management. That would be me via the comment sectionzes, thanks and I hope you enjoy.
