About Me

Gainesville, Florida, United States
Astronomy themes, landscapes and public art are some of the targets of my work. These are the best of times as we stand on the threshold of unprecedented discovery in space. As a space artist, I am grateful for and inspired by the amazing images of faraway places that the great telescopes of our generation have given us. As a plein air painter, I am inspired to quickly capture light, color and movement with the focus on our rapidly changing environment. As an artist within the live public art venue I am inspired by the opportunity for creativity, spontaneity and exchange.


4th Musical Chairs Project 3/8/13

"The Hot Seat" was my contribution to this annual event that raises funds for children's art education.  This was the fourth chair that I've made for them, all with a space theme.  Scroll down to see my earlier works, "Moon Chair", "Mission to Mars" and "Lord of the Rings".  I like to play the perpendicular surfaces of the chair back and seat against each other to create a 3D effect.

The event featured a couple dozen chairs, each uniquely finished by local artists, a reception and auction at The Doris Bardon Community Center.  100% of the proceeds benefit The Community Foundation of North Central Florida, Friends of Elementary Arts, Inc.
