For more than 30 years I have been inspired by the abstract images that can only be seen at high magnification through the microscope. I am a trained microscopist and a practitioner of the nearly lost art of photomicrography. I have collected thousands of photomicrographs and these microscopic subjects provide the basis and color palette for the images I paint. So, whether I am painting or assembling, my art is always developed from these shapes, textures and colors.
I have spent the last several years experimenting with broken tempered glass as the substrate for my paintings and sculpture. The natural mosaic of shattered glass makes for some serious artistic challenges but the random nature of every break creates a unique one of a kind object every time. I have also been producing these unique glass art pieces in functional forms such as vertical blinds, chairs, tables, lamps etc.
I am excited about sharing my art with interested art enthusiasts.
