Statement

Everyone needs an escape. This is mine!

My imagination is my art it is

“Art & Stories Beyond Earth”

My creations seem to escape from the very fabric of space & time, they are but a window into a future that awaits just beyond the Bounds of Earth.

I am but a conduit, a melding together of thoughts transfered to my Earthly brainfrom that of  an Alien, expressing them as imagination, bringing it to the fore of my grey matter, once there it is left to percolate.

It is then up to the human to interpret those thoughts as images.

My art..............

Everything about my art is self taught, its really just a matter of acquiring the software and exploring it!!

And it is a new take on 3D landscape creation that makes use of graphic synthesis technology to create photo-realistic landscapes of imaginary worlds.

The size of the world I work with is theoretically infinite, but practical considerations require that world size be limited to a computer screen. Although the finished creation can be printed to any size!

On my computer screen the playing field is planar (flat, non-spherical), on my palette (screen) is a square terrain 60,000 kilometers by 60,000 kilometers, but I can view that terrain from anywhere from 1 km to 60,000 kms and can be viewed from heights of sea level to low orbit, but I also can see it as a side view.

The terrain I work on is more than three times the size of the Earth.

And within my computer world the land/space scapes are infinite, the only thing that would limit this, would be a small amount of imagination..................no problem there.


I also use my extensive photographic knowledge and the photos themselves in my work.


In simple terms my creations are are based on fractals as seen on the horizontal, most artists who create fractals see them only from above or planar.

Photo manipulation, digital painting, 3D computer generations, renders, etc.

My creations have appeared in books and magazines, calenders, also used in art classes in schools, I give demonstrations & talks about my work.


My work as sold to enthusiasts across the planet.

If you buy one of my works, send me an email and I will forward to you the story that goes with it in mountable form at no charge, I will also include the thought process that went into the creation.

A great mind once said….........

Imagination is more important than knowledge

Albert Einstein.

I say…..............

The key to photo manipulation and 3D rendering is to ensure that the final image remains as photorealistic as possible, even if the scene it presents is a fantasy.
