I have been creating digital art for the past thirty years. I am especially fascinated by spirals, shells, tessellations, patterns, and self-similarity in creating objects that look like or allude to complex organic/natural structures. My aim is not necessarily to depict real things artistically; instead, I strive to represent possible forms fantastically. Therefore, all of my artwork has surreal, dreamlike colors and textures.
