“Weathered wood is collected from forests and shores. After cleaning and smoothing surfaces, a wheel thrown vessel is created, glazed and fired in the kiln. The two are paired and permanently joined to create a new and unique yet natural sculpture for your home or business.”

This house exists in Sammamish Washington, USA, in reality-
My intention was to create an image of the ‘feel’ of the home based on its brave design elements and unique aspects inside and out; combined.
The result is this interesting – modern and sophisticated image that depicts the ‘soul’ of the home and includes some of the landscape and surroundings to which it happily belongs.

9X9 Watercolor on paper – Part of the MIND PICTURES series.
The “Mind Pictures” were so named because the images depicted are totally created in the mind of the artist. The process begins by crinkling and dyeing the paper, and thus creating a textured surface. The paper is stretched, and the artist concentrates on the surface in a meditative state, until the image develops in the mind. Bit by bit as the images appear, they are painted on the crinkled paper. The texture developed during this process, is pleasing to the eye and connects the elements with an interesting effect.
18X24 Oil on canvas.

One of the Clay/Wood series, approx. 18x6x5. A table top sculpture created from a rolled slab, shaped, marked and incised with textural elements. Blue and Black glazes and underwater flowing shapes of the fish harmonize with the natural shapes of the driftwood.
