My paintings combine science and art. Astronomy and physics, particularly string theory, excite my imagination – creating possibilities for portraying multiple dimensions. Those unseen forces are depicted metaphorically intertwining with faith and belief. A Midwest sensibility influences my visual stories. Nature and recognizable objects symbolize abstract concepts. Each painting is a story – all part of a larger adventure.
Creating acrylic paintings on canvas is my primary form of visual communication. However, I love to play with video – producing arts culture documentaries, corporate projects, student works, art videos, and other fun stuff. I draw with graphite. With still photography I gravitate towards nature textures, light effects, and portraits.
