My Bio
I grew up with a taste for sci-fi and fantasy but the beauty of nature (especially Winter and the other seasons) has always moved me.
Music inspires me to paint, especially "mindscape' music, such as prog rock, psychedelic music, classical, new age and medieval music.
Places from my childhood memories or places that I see in and around my neighborhood influence some of the landscapes in my paintings, as well.

Amazing art 💙💙💙

Thanks! I'm pleased you like it.

Hi. I discovered your art some years ago and fell in love with it. I have always been partial to surrealism and your art is beautiful ethereal genius. Thanks for putting so much of it on the site.

Thank you so much. Your words are very kind. I'm glad you appreciate my work.

Happy Birthday! You are an especially clever and knowledgeable person. Your intuition is powerful, and you’re able to quickly size up a situation or person. Others frequently turn to you for your wise and unique advice. You’re generous with your time and energy, always willing to help out those who really need it. Still, you are not a pushover and although you don’t need much of it, you do appreciate gratitude. Famous people born today: Maurice Chevalier, Emmy Rossum, Rachel Ward, Peter Scolari, Barry White, Jason Statham,  Richard Jordan GatlingJesse OwensEiji Toyoda,   Irène Joliot-CurieHans Zimmer,  Ryan PotterLouis C.K.Paul Walker,  Yao MingRuben Studdard, & Jennifer Hudson

Thank you very much!
