Please note that all forms of art ordered will NOT have the Watermark!
I am a modern impressionist with figurative abstraction thrown in. If I were to create a phrase for my work it would be, 'Late 20th and Early 21st Century Mixed Media Impressionistic painter and poet telling stories with art.'

I first began mixing media when I was very young and everything began as a sketch in pencils then added watercolor, then oil, then acrylics in different forms. I love all the different mica powders and iridescent paint That are available. today to use in our paintings. I usually use them often in my more imaginative works... the biggest problem using them is they do not photograph the wonderfully reflective ways they change colors in the reality of the original work! When photographed and I have invested in good equipment and lighting you get white spots usually but it still looks nice just not so impressive! A great example of this is my... I am a time traveler painting and in the... It is all about Choices.

I take photos, use watercolor pencils, draw, paint in acrylic, paint in photoshop or Illustrator, add poetry & sometimes combine all of these in Photoshop layers to create a piece I am happy with. Sometimes it is just a painting, sometimes my poetry is added, sometimes a pen & ink or pencils colorized through Photoshop.
The digital side of my art has taken many years to learn. I began over 30 years ago using Corel to combine my works and add poetry. Then I would import into PhotoShop from there into Corel to get the job done. Today Adobe Photoshop does everything. I import each working piece into photoshop and when I am happy with the piece I will flatten the image and save it as I like for prints and Artist proofs in the future. Now I am even able to put many effects into my work because of photoshop capabilities. I can flatten a piece and decide to save it differently and do special effects to it and even change colors and contrasts. One of my favorite pieces to use as an example is 'Changing Seasons in America,' Which has over 107 different faces and images created within it, many added or created right in Illustrator & Photoshop

When you order a giclee directly from me I am going to paint into it also so it’s not just reproduction but because of the painting into it, it is unique and it becomes an original. In digital artwork, there is no such thing as an original because it’s being created ultimately In Photoshop or other painting programs. Acrylic paintings, media work, or painting but by. putting it in Photoshop and doing other things to it or doing layers then there is no original but each and everyone if printed and something is done differently to them can become a rich original on their own. The first ones of any piece become artist proofs and they’re like an original within digital art that applies to pieces that are not changed. When you see my art in a gallery or order a giclee from me I will always have made it one of a kind by adding special touches and effects to that piece.

You can order my work in Different sizes and even embedded in Metal wall art that radically shows off my work in stunning ways. Contact me for Current PRICING and specials on artist proofs and originals.
I also create personal works of art for YOU from your photographs or you can fly me to your location to do an assessment and take photos of individuals and areas you want to be incorporated in a painting as well as poetry created just for that work and it will be only yours.

If you don’t find anything in my work that you want to buy please look at all the very talented artists I’m following because they’re more than worthy of your attention and I’m sure you’ll find something you love with one or more of them.

My Showings
I have in the past shown for years in various locations around Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego, Laguna CA. coastal areas, and Solana Beach. I am now living in Henderson, Nevada. I have shown at the Henderson Convention Center, I am one of the Laguna Artists, see some of my work at LagunaArt.com.and always showing at the Boulder City Art Guild, Boulder City. I do gallery showings upon request because my gallery and studio are in my home and at least four times a year I take my interest list and invite them well in advance to come to an artist's open house with refreshments.
