Welcome to the visual world in which I have
lived. I have always had a wonder to life, but
as I went through it, I started experiencing a
wonder for the work which came through me.
Leaving High School with a diploma in one
hand, in the other I carried a camera. Years
I spent learning to see, more years of just
learning and then the years of seeing what I
had learned. Now I have a whole sh.. pile of
work, yet when I look from my photo's to the
digital illustrations and acrylic painting, they all
have some common thread... the Universe, a
Prime Creator and mankind.

This visual process has kept me deeply connected
to printing and the printing processes. 35 years
devoted to learning to see and control color, now
taking the Master's control of this great digital era,
bringing out a quality to all the work that I do.
What this means to you is that I provide you with
great prints.

I have much to show and many styles to share,
hold on, it may take a while for it all to unfold.

Paper vs Canvas:
I am a paper man. It breathes more life and records and reflects more
texture and detail. As an artist showing my work to others, I can observe
the body language of another as they hold and feel a rich paper.
Granted, all that disappears once framed and on the wall, as a matter
of fact one can not tell the difference from one paper to the next if they
are comparable prints. Prints do require a frame before they can be
exhibited upon a wall, a stretched canvas however, can be hung with
or without a frame. Framing is an art in itself and a well chosen
frame can make any image even more dynamic.

However canvas does have its place. A well made canvas will make
most viewers immediately think it seems "more like a piece of art" in
most cases. Canvas is more difficult to print out the same detail as a
good paper, but it can be gotten and it takes varnishing to bring out the
light. As said, a canvas can go directly on the wall without additional
costs of framing.
