I will do commissioned art works and combination literary/artistic projects.

About My Business:


"Art from Grain of Sand to Infinity": In both my art and writing, I try to capture something of the beauty and mystery of nature. By "beauty" I do not mean a shallow prettiness; Géricault's painting of a madwoman is beautiful in its poignant expression of a tragic reality. As a miniaturist, I try to see and re-create "a World in a Grain of Sand." An underlying purpose in all of my work has been the search for unity in a world so often shattered by violent multiplicity.
