Imaginary Realism

I am inspired by the everyday, by life lessons, small moments, and big ideas. My goal is to take these inspirations and present them to you the same way I see them in my head—as objects for you to discover, and  places you could walk into and explore.

I think of my images as a calculated combination of the familiar and the impossible. I want to create visual stories, scenes that are open to your interpretation, places that invite you in and let you complete the narrative for yourself. My images are how I see feelings and experiences, and I want you to be able to see how they fit within your own life story as well.

I believe the digital medium is finding its place in the art world, and that artists should use, value and enjoy all available means of creative expression. I hope that artists and art lovers everywhere continue to push the boundaries of what constitutes a fine art medium.
 

BIOGRAPHY

I live and work nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. I am married and have two grown kids, my daughter and my stepson. My home office studio faces right into the woods adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Every day I am surrounded by the perfect balance of technology and nature. I couldn't wish for more.

As a child, I would draw and paint at any opportunity. My Mother was the head of the computer science department at a local community college, and did some work in artificial intelligence for NASA. My father was an engineer for Ford Aerospace. We had a computer in the house when not very many people had home computers. I used to doodle on used punch cards and green and white striped pin fed printer paper.

I began drawing - pixel by pixel - on an Apple II computer when I was about 13. Throughout high school and college I practiced art and design, and during this time I started digital painting. I also continued working with traditional media. I left college early to begin a graphic design career and continued to teach myself and explore new digital media. I began using 3D software in 1998 and finally felt I had really found the medium that best let me express my artistic ideas.

I began showing and selling prints of my work in 2003, and I now do so through this website, as well as in physical galleries here in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. I am always looking for new venues, and hope to expand this list in coming years.
