Thoughts about my place on this planet and in this universe are undercurrent to all my work. Quietly exploring wild places everyday, I can see things that normally go unnoticed. Animal interactions are common and day-to-day changes in the land and its inhabitants are more easily spotted.
Back in the studio, painting extends that sense of how it feels to be immersed in the wilds, vulnerable, yet uninhibited and fully connected.
“Rewilding” and "Becoming Wild" are two recent NFT collections of hand-made, IRL(In Real Life) abstract paintings photographed and then digitally worked like a canvas. Each is a high res, 1/1, digital image, unique in the world, for sale as NFTs(non-fungible tokens) on Foundation and OpenSea in the metaverse. Each includes a brief narrative. You can see details and read about them by clicking on an image and then on "Description." What you see on this page is a brief selection from each collection.
Thanks so much for your support. Purchasing my work and commenting are not the only ways you've given me a boost. Believe it or not, every time you "like" or even just click on any or all of my photos and links, you help me get my work out into the world. I sincerely appreciate your help.
