I have taken thousands of photographs, which led to my involvement with photos taken with the electron microscope. I began with producing series of drawings based on different electron photographs. From these initial studies I painted my first large format oils on wooden doors, exploring and expanding upon the studies that I had done involving photo-electronic images. It is from these beginnings that I have been continuing my work. I have felt compelled towards abstracting images in news media including print, the internet, computers, electronic photography and pop culture with oils on canvas. The work I produce is all about color, form and things that appear to be simple on the surface having a much larger and much more complex reality.
