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. More details about each work , including the veneer species in each marquetry , can be found by title on the blog pages of my website - woodmarvel.net . 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 purchase and enjoy.
