I am an artist/photographer/writer working in various mediums with an emphasis on Asian historic scenes, model works and architectural's.. As my works are a progression of themes and ideals I hope much of what I am concentrating on now will be widely appreciated especially the new art films which are derived from my photography works. My art here on this site is more painterly as that is the final destination for my work and that being as oil painting on canvas.
My art is a constant progression and unfolding in a meaningful manner as to be true to my own vision as an artist. I joined this site to interact with other like-minded artists and I enjoy this site for purposes of critique and to review other art works which I have found to be quite enlightening and inspirational.

The creation of my imagery is a journey of color experimentation, themes and ideals with substance and not without flaws. The chance happening of an idea to be put into motion for that creation we call art is the culmination of my aesthetic values and individual sensibilities. Some of my future works will be built on all that I have created before with a renewed view upon our world which is sadly in turmoil. No longer can I just create "pretty" pictures without standing up to the extreme problems that embroil our planet and weaken humanity. Some of my newest works will focus on many of the problems we face while incorporating a sense of hope. This direction of high concept works will take on such monumental problems such as land and water mismanagement, dwindling resources, overpopulation, racism and greed which I think are humanities greatest follies. It is not enough for me as artist to simply put a mirror or spotlight on these subjects like many artists do but to create imagery that puts the viewer in a position to rationalize what one can do to help counter the negativity that our precious world faces.
Thanks for stopping by and please do something positive to help this troubled world after all it is mostly the artists that beautify and inspire it by creating meaningful and thought provoking works of art. This film link below is the result of artists that got together and did something positive and I have watched it several times and it has had a profound impact on me.
