I create large abstract color & BW limited edition prints for private & corporate collections:

I am intrigued by the collusion of nature and man as it accidentally creates art.
I hunt for this art in the wild: visual landscapes that would probably be
overlooked or would be deemed ugly. Caused by erosion, collision, rust,
and rot, when presented without identification they can be beautiful, seductive,
and emotionally evocative.
Having evolved over a period of years, my subjects seem permanent, but they are
transitory. These pieces of incidental art vanish. I capture them at the moment
of their existence; often just days, if not hours before they disappear.

In keeping with the concept of Wabi-sabi my images adhere to the
Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence: Impermanence, suffering,
and absence of self-nature, as well as being appreciative of the integrity of
natural processes.

Abstract images can connect with us, both consciously and subconsciously.
