While Drawing and Painting have long been my personal therapy , I have had no technical instruction in those mediums beyond High School. I usually draw on my imagination , rather than photos or solid objects at hand, to inform my compositions . I have been producing marquetry since 1993 , much of it to be used in architectural and furniture applications , until 2008 , when I received a windfall of varied veneer offcuts from a plywood manufacturer , and started cutting up my paintings to replace sections with those and other veneers. It is very labor intensive work , so I occasionally revert to painting again ,both to give my hands a rest and to test new ideas in more forgiving materials. While many of the originals on my website have been sold, any piece there can be printed on demand by sending me an email with the title. I can then upload the image to FAA for you to enjoy in you home or place of business.
