Cosmos

 

I am fascinated with the imagery of undersea, under-the-microscope and outer-space and the curious ways they seem related.  I'm looking at the macro and the micro in various atmospheres.

 

These paintings often read in different ways to different viewers, and I like that complexity. We all bring our interests and experiences when we see artwork, so the skin-diver might see fish under water, the biologist can see micro-organisms from a pond and the astronomer sees a galaxy in space. 

Many of the paintings on this website are available for purchase. Those not available will have either "private collection" or "commissioned" in the caption to indicate they are sold. Please contact me for pricing on works you are interested in.
