Welcome to my shop!

Using an optical polarizing microscope with a built-in camera I create photographs that reveal the incredible beauty and intricate forms of natural and man-made materials.

To create the scenes I melt/dissolve natural and synthetic materials, spread a thin layer of the solution on a glass microscope slide, and cover it with a thin cover slip. Next, I selectively crystallize and recrystallize the materials.

Recrystallization is a way for me to re-create the internal structures of the crystals many times over until certain “inner space” patterns appear.

I explore the “inner space” patterns through use of state-of-the-art optics until a suitable artistic scene comes into focus. Next, I use the mechanical features of the microscope…

I explore the “inner space” patterns through use of state-of-the-art optics until a suitable artistic scene comes into focus. Next, I use the mechanical features of the microscope to select an artistically pleasing rendition of the patterns in the scene.

I photograph with a special type film and then put images into digital data.

Next, I use filter and shaping tools to create mix media artwork such as the following:

ELEPHANTS: TokiDoki Jazbucci Crozo

Highly refined printing technology methods are used to infuse the images directly into ALUMINUM.
