My Bio
~~~ For several decades I made my living as a research and development technician (mostly electronic and mechanical, some computer gaming) while doing artwork when I could; now I get to be an artist. The art I used to do was mostly drawings and paintings done with India ink and colored inks, or strange creatures and machines made from various plastic materials. These days I mainly carve, what I mainly carve is jewelry, and what I mainly carve things from are natural materials of all sorts. I still do digital art, though, both vector and pixil based, including fonts for computer printing. What next? I'm mostly working on improving my carving, but I want to make some art using the machine tool and computer knowledge from my old "day job".

~~~ I do take commissions, and occasionally trade art. If you are interested, send me a note.

Such Is life. I have eight full-size file cabinets, three rolling ones, and several file tubs....

I like the alien script, and if you find the file folder I would like the complete info on it.
