About the Artist
I am a New Orleans native calling Houston, Tx home for over 30 years. I combine my Information Technology skills with my artistic side to create digital works that explore my love of astronomy and the outdoors. I also explore emotions - the light and darkness in life.
Creative and logical since I was little, I considered a career in science, ended up in computer science, but never lost my desire to create. Writing and music took up a lot of time, but weren't quite the right fit for constant pursuits.
I found my voice in digital art, after becoming inspired by the work of Ryan Bliss. Finally, here was an art medium that let me be a geek and artist!
If you're into art labels, my work comes in two styles: abstracts and a representational impressionist style I call Almost Real. I create however feels right for an idea.
My work is printed on metal, fine art papers, and more. Metal is my main print medium, and you will find metal and various paper prints to purchase directly from me here online.
If you're in the Houston area, plan a visit to my studio at Hardy & Nance Studios during our monthly Open Studios night. There's always a show in the gallery, and studios to visit. You'll also find me at First Saturday Arts Market and the Market at Sawyer Yards regularly. Join my mailing list for emails with my schedule.
Private viewings are also available at my studio. Call, email, or DM to arrange.
