A Word from the Artist-
It is simple, really. I am doing what I was born to do. I have known since I was very young that I would be an artist. I had no idea in what medium, what style.
Until very recently, even all of the above was still unknown to me. I have worked for years in pencil, doing portraits of Western peoples and places. I started painting in 1994, learning a whole new medium in oils. I’ve dabbled in sculpture, finished dozens of murals- both inside and outside, with some over 100 feet long! There was still something missing.
The earliest pull upon my artistic heart was the detailed works of Rembrandt. I loved the Dutch Masters. But, my passion was the fantasy art by Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazzetta. The limitless possibilities of Fantasy as an Art subject. WOW! What fun!
In 2016 I have returned to the passion of my youth- FANTASY. After several works delving into this OTHER world of artistic expression, I still struggled to find THE thing to keep the fire of creation alive.
I started a new self-portrait depicting the old and battered warrior within my soul… Eureka!
The painting became a theme- The theme an idea, the idea a book, then series… and THE RA’H SON CHRONICLES were born.
I am currently writing the Chronicles, illustrating the cover art for the books, doing the illustrations for posters, as well as headers for chapters. (whew) I truly feel (other than commission work, portraits, or occasional murals) that my life work is now the book series and the illustration art for them.
I feel so lucky to have survived the horrors of a starving artist to arrive at this place and time of perpetual creation.
