My paintings have been displayed around the world including New York, Paris, and London. I have painted for NASA ,The Air force Art Collection, as well as corporate and private collections. Early in my career, as an aerospace artist, my work revolved around space shuttles, space stations, satellites, and advanced aircraft. Many of those future concepts orbit above us, some are now history. Later, I enjoyed working with computers, developing multi-media projects, mixing 3D modeling with animation, video, and audio.

Over the past few years I have gravitated back to traditional mediums. At my core, I remain a painter. I have a passion for Oil, Acrylic, and transparent Watercolor. Many of my paintings have a similar theme. The subject may be an International Space Station or a 19th century sailing ship but the restless spirit remains the same. Some may be surrealistic and some may be realistic but they all deal with the timeless similarities of our human condition. I believe that creativity is essential for living a healthy fulfilling life. I hope that my paintings inspire you to pick up a brush or your favorite instrument and express yourself.
