Art Makes the World a Better Place.
I can’t imagine a world without art. Art inspires and feeds our imagination. It enhances our homes. Energizes our living and working spaces. And adds the perfect detail to a skillfully decorated home.
I was fortunate that there have never been empty walls in my childhood homes. My mother’s paintings were the first art I saw as a child. Later the walls of our small basement apartment featured my paint-by-numbers, my brother’s space photos, my hippy love art and of course a couple Partridge Family celebrity posters. That first gallery-wall display offered the portals and gateways to our dreams. Art was a place to let our thoughts run, as we struggled with the inevitable challenges that life brought us.
Four Decades a Resourceful Creative.
In college I studied analogue graphic design, that included type-setting, cut/paste layout, the photo-chemical processes of photography, and painting film cell-animations. After completing my Associate in Graphic and Communicational Arts, I never stopped learning. I continued part-time studies in the Fine Arts at North Island College. But, I never completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts. I was always too interested in immersing in a process outside the scope of a curriculum. I would wander back occasionally over the years, stopping in to explore painting, pottery and printmaking with the most interesting of the new instructors.
The pursuit of texture took me deep into printmaking. I eventually developed my own unique processes of reduction block printing, and later explored photo-polymer-etching and received a few regional awards along the way. I am grateful for the traditional education of graphic design and fine arts. It was essential to understanding colour, form and composition. Those skills added to my confidence in navigating technology. It has enabled me to approach digital software and digital painting in unconventional ways.
Modern Art Created with Modern Tools
The wall art I create uses my exclusive process of collage, combining photos and repurposed paintings, of landscape-botanicals, or still-life and florals. Abstracted and painted digitally, pixel by pixel, by hand, there are no automated computer textures. The painterly marks are handmade with my custom digital-brushes.
My abstract style is expressive incorporating familiar subjects in a modern aesthetic. Art that you will feel comfortable hanging in your living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen or even bathroom. Wall décor that is joyful and inviting, while conveying an eclectic style, that starts a dinner conversation.

within budget, in a variety of sizes.
Save Time – faster art delivery
Using traditional painting processes it would have taken me more than a month to complete a painting, that now I can paint-digitally in a week. And the canvas is in virtually any size. I spend less time mixing and applying paint, cleaning brushes, and no longer wait for layers of paint to dry, before I apply the next coat. I can work from anywhere, in a café, in my home studio, or traveling, so the ideas are always fresh, relevant and evolving.
The wall art in my gallery shop is available on archival canvases of 12” x 16” x 1.5” and 18” x 24”x 1.5” museum wrapped corners with wood frames in vertical (portrait) orientation. I think the vertical formats enhances the feeling of art being a portal, and works well in combining pieces. Quality ‘Print-on-Demand,’ service saves time, the art is shipped directly from various facilities in the world. Artwork can also be printed on acid-free paper. You can also commission an artwork to include special imaginary in a horizontal, or square format, in a custom size up to 32” x 32”. And if you need to fill a bigger space don’t forget you can also request artworks to display as a diptych (2 – side by side) or a triptych (3 – side by side).
Save Money – Digital-original Paintings
the Affordable Luxury Solution.
Digital-original painting is not a reproduction of traditional medium painting. Like a photograph created with digital tools, a digital painting only exists physically once it is printed on canvas or paper. All digital wall art here is sold as a limited edition. The limited edition can be as little as one – for that One-of-a-Kind art buyer, or up to 100 in different sizes for a hotel renovation. This keeps the wall décor unique an affordable for the Professional Interior Designer who is revitalizing the spaces of a home or office. Or the Decorator on a budget.
My goal has always been to create art that is outside the borders of ordinary.
What’s ahead? A new painting is created weekly. I’m excited to share many more paintings in the years ahead. I’m just over a ¼ of the way through a two year 100 Digital Paintings Project.
