“My art is my expression of my inner feelings inspired by nature and the world around me.  As a trained physicist, I have come to appreciate the artistic beauty found in nature, as well as mankind creations within the natural environment.  Art is a career came later in life, and was inspired by a store of memories and experiences observing natural and manmade creations.  I work in a variety of media from watermedia to digital.  Most recently I have explored digital collage, with its unique ability to combine multiple perspectives in one composition, and fractal art as a way of artistically simulating natural creations.”
