From the Artist
While working as a commercial photographer, I became interested in Astrophotography which further cultivated my love and interest in the cosmos as a subject. Unable to photograph the many awe inspiring forms, colors, and depths of the universe I utilize painting to capture that vast beauty. Using a process of acrylic glazing and a variety of powder and mica based pigments I create sparkling luminous imagery often combining this with silhouettes to explore the universe within and around us all.
