The work was created as a composite of about 20 licensed, manipulated stock images from various sources (listed on the image profile page), and includes mouse drawings over all. The mouse drawings were kept “scribbly”, to indicate that they were drawn by the hand of one on the cusp of an end, perhaps connecting to a hopeful beginning.
Through dimming eyes,
Trinkets in the skies,
“If I should die before I wake,
What else should I pray?
There’s more to consider when I die!
What do I take of me beyond…?
Goodbye! It’s time to fly!

This is a work-in-progress for an image series that I’d wish to finish one of these days.

During late autumn and winter I start to miss the blossoms of spring and summer. And so I create my dreams with my artwork. My favorite time of year is when the rains fall and what would seem delicate blossoms thrive in torrential waters … becoming sublime.

One of my first abstract creations using fractals
There will be a time for you and I
We will weigh the options & the worth of love
If it’s not to be will we know?

The Robin Trower song of the same name inspired this image and then the image inspired the poem.

I wonder what can really define a woman? Be refinement, grace and nonchalance? What is true femininity? Being aware of who you are, that you know you’re attractive or that your unconscious feminine power?
A woman is beautiful from her simply comportment just by the fact of being unique, releasing a certain power about femininity.
Femininity is not just movement, but rather about the attraction that it radiates as a person. Anybody can be attracted to you, because of the the person who you are, because you’re the one who stands out.
In the picture you can see the spirit behind the girl, who was attracted to her. It’s as if he had waited a long moment to be near her, feeling her.Because she is the girl whose femininity is more special.
I tried to make an illustration of “beauty and the beast” something like that, and i was inspired just from my imagination and from the Nightwish’s song – " Beauty and the beast "

I have listed with the image all credits of any stock that I used other than my own. When I saw the picture of the model a song instantly came to my head and I had to do something. Music is a major inspiration of my art. One day I hope to learn how to use my PS2 before it doen’t work on my computers operating system.

This has been often done, to put a beast’s head on a human portrait, but I thought I’d give it a go.Not an actual sea eagle of course but a play on words and Nelson’s role as the supreme commander of the sea.
The original portrait of Nelson is by Friedrich Heinrich Fuger.

This image is a little ‘tongue in cheek’. I am not sure if others get my dry humour but I was expressing the concepts of ‘picking a speck of wood from anothers eye whilst having a log in our own’ and ’look in the mirror!". Elements of recycled material are also a deliberate juxtaposition.

This is an image very dear to me as it shows the way we shed our (spiritual) skin/shell as our understanding and wisdom grows and we become ‘more’ the person we are meant to be.

Originally displayed at the Academy of Natural Sciences’s gift shop in Philadelphia in conjunction with their live gecko exhibit, this piece explores duality utilizing both Celtic design and modern abstraction. Geckos are also bred in huge numbers in captivity, which causes genetic abnormalities, including conjoined twins.

Picasso, a twentieth century cubist, used his art to alter our conscious (egoic) perception of the way we view art. This was the intent of my work…to show that his influence has altered my artistic vision.

Honestly, I don’t think there is much to say…I just hope that I captured the moment and the frustration of this young Lady.
Abandonment is always difficult to accept. How one chooses to deal with this determines the ultimate effects it has on their life.
