My Occupation Artist
My Bio First a designer, then an art director, both in advertising and publishing, now a painter.
My books are currently a way of publishing to my friends the stuff they never get to see, and paintings they can't afford.
Current books are themes that occur in my paintings, Erik for instance was from a set produced in Crete. Inspired buy the writings and characters of Linear A and B I have woven them into a myth story of a lost god.
The travel books expose my love of photography. I hope they provide a valuable insight to places, cultures and people that expand our understanding of others.
