About

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my online shop, and thank you for your support! I feel exceedingly fortunate to share my ’ablaze’ creations with the world. If you’re ever traveling through the southeast part of USA I’d love to meet you in the real world too at my booth at one of the many art shows I exhibit at.

Inside my store you’ll find vivid psychedelic inspirations, originals as well as prints. Nothing drab or ho hum. From small key chains to large colorful designs that transform a boring wall into an entrancing focal point. Please inquire within if you’d like to commission one of my designs for your office building, estate, ocean-front home, or public building.

My artistic explorations have spanned many mediums– from oil painting and oil pastels, to acrylic painting to colored pencils. But my favorite medium is pen and ink, for the control…

My artistic explorations have spanned many mediums– from oil painting and oil pastels, to acrylic painting to colored pencils. But my favorite medium is pen and ink, for the control and colors that I feel work best with my creations– my subjects range from the realistic to the fantastical! My drawings are like an adventure they don't often begin with a set destination. Each piece is equal parts accidental discovery and whimsical fancy. Sometimes, I may start with a primary element, such as an animal, sun, or flower; while other times I’ll simply squiggle a line across the page and begin building from whatever appears.

My animal and gnome drawings explore the artistic connections between fantasy and nature with unexpected details and color combinations. In my more abstract works, I draw networks of asymmetrical shapes, swirls and colorful patterns that spread organically across the page like lurking tendrils or flaring sunbursts. I like to blend sharp edges with swooping lines and curves to create a playful dichotomy between the elements that invite observers to look more closely and explore more deeply.

The inspiration for many of my works comes from my seaside studio and the ‘colorful’ Daytona Beach area of Florida USA; sometimes I think my hands are actually being controlled by one of the many lizards which stare at me as I work!

*the colored inks I use can fade over time if not protected...I recommend keeping the artworks out of direct sunlight and behind uv protected glass.
