This gallery represents paintings from ancient times, mythology, places I have traveled. Once in a while, the artifact is re-imagined in my minds eye and becomes something new or a story is added.

Paleo Night Sky
I have a deep love of astronomy and here I get to share with you the beauty of the universe. Since I was very young, I read science fiction books that were handed down to me from my father.
Years ago, the human race took its first tiny steps into space exploration. This is something that has been dreamt of for over a thousand years. Nowadays, any new findings or the activities of our astronauts only make second page news, if even that. The more we find out there, I am convinced, the more precious and unique our planet becomes and the smaller our global village seems to be. I hope my paintings awaken the wonder of space in the viewer. Gazing up at our night sky was something we all did as children, but most have forgotten to do in a long while

Along with a love for art history and astronomy, I have a deep love for mythology and world spirituality. One very influential work I read years ago was Joseph Campbell's Power of Myth, exploring the thread that binds all of our stories together. I am, at heart, a seeker.

This section features mostly black and white images I have done. Most of the time when I draw, I work in charcoal or graphite, but have also done illustrative work in pen and ink. Also pictured are a few intaglio prints that I have done.
