I like to refer to myself as a cross pollination media painter, for not only do I often blur the lines between human nature, animal nature, and the natural elements, but as well I cross mediums between oil paint, photography, and digital manipulation. I have become a Mixtist, I prefer the blending of the real and the surreal, creating a new painted reality. I have developed a personal iconography over time and these symbols and subjects get reused in different ways. Having always been drawn to medieval themes of colours , decorative pageantry and symbols, there is often a common design embellishment related to this genre. Medieval objects such the sword, shields, chrystals, and decorative motif reappear across the series in my growing visual vernacular.
On one of my voyages to Asia, I visited an elephant orphanage and became smitten by the inner beauty and strength of the elephants and the protection they exhibit for each other. They have become my symbol of strength , telepathy and unity.
They were the stars of a series in my gallery called Animal Magnetism,
At the heart of all my work though, is the essential study of illumination, through colour and light. I am drawn to the supernatural visionary experience in all the mediums I work in , whether it be painting, photography, digital art or as of lately the interrelation between oil on canvas and the ether of the digital world. I am always looking for that focal light that ties to illumination and just a little bit of that divine glow.
