About original art
floating colors underlayers: oil paints, often mixed with bronze powders or crushed mica
overlaid figurative drawing: charcoal, pastel pencil, oil crayon
All works are on paper – mostly handmade (though not by me), using traditional techniques
for most of the Visible Skeleton drawings: a sheet specially made for me at Moulin de Fleurac in France
for most of the anatomy drawings: paper from the Twinrocker mill in Brookston, Indiana
also: Japanese kozo and handmade papers from various makers including St. Armand, Dieu Donné, Bergerac, and Arches
My drawings are small but have a strong presence. The largest is about 11 x 15 inches; others are 8 x 10 or smaller. Many of the drawings of bones and the skeleton are at actual size, as determined from x-rays.
About artist prints
Many of the artworks on this site are available as artist prints. Some are reproductions of drawings, faithful to the originals in size, color, and texture. Others are composites in which drawings or floating colors are layered together with digital imagery (from radiology scans or photomicrographs).
These archival inkjet pigment prints are printed on Epson UltraSmooth Fine Art or Hahnemuhle German Etching paper, on 13 x 19 or 17 x 22 inch sheets.
Each print is part of a small edition, individually numbered and signed by the artist.
(As a more affordable option, some 8.5 x 11 inch, unsigned prints are also available.)
Visit the Available art page for more about the availability and purchase of original art or artist prints. You can also search this site to find drawings by subject matter.

The Consciousness of the Body, a book I've been writing and designing, is in the works. It tells this story, of the life of my body, in words and pictures. A narrative of the body on this website is excerpted from the book; the introduction was recently published in Interalia Magazine as “Floating on inner seas.” Please contact me if you would like to be notified when the book is available.
