Digital Collages
We all need ways to use those photos that mean something because of family ties, special vacations, or that sense of place we encounter while traveling. Several years ago I decided to marry those boxed (now digital) photos with quilt and stained glass patterns. Fun project to be sure.

Nudes and Semi-Nudes
Most of these pieces were commissioned a few years ago. All but two are mixed media. The Adam and Eve pieces are digital art.

Fine and Digital Art
Some of the work in this portfolio is digital, some is watercolor. All were created for specific people or created because I had an idea I wanted to try. For example, the Balboa Park batik has (in the design) images from the koi pond at the center of the park - which is a favorite place of mine.

Children's Book Illustrations
I illustrated a book my uncle wrote. I started creating line drawings that were meant to re-render the story board drawings he provided. I scanned the line drawings and digitally colored them. The project took about a year but that's because I had to work on it during my free time (which was in short supply).
