Where may I see your art?
That is a question I receive frequently. Notoriously, I am guilty of not cataloging the work I create. Nor updating this site with new works of art. Below is my attempt to share those works I have crafted over the years. It is not comprehensive. And what is displayed is a fraction of work completed. Hope you enjoy the tour!
Watercolor painting for an award-winning book cover.
Sometimes I forget that I have created illustrations for books. Interior illustrations as well as front cover illustration.
Here is a story of my work for the books, Requiem for Used Ignition Cap.
Artisan wood painting
Painted shields and banners
So, there was a time I painted shields and banners at a Renaissance Faire. . .
I like to think of this as medieval graphic design.
One summer I decided to build and decorate a bookshelf. The bookshelf features literary scenes from East and West. The illustration was burned in to the wood using a woodburning stylus and later stained and painted.

Block printed greeting cards
Many years ago I taught my children the art of block printing. Initially, I used scraps of wood from home improvement projects. Later, the prints were created from Speedball® Speedy Carve™ blocks. Each holiday season more hand-printed greeting cards are crafted.
