FeathersStill thought of as my signature piece. A multi-layered fractal. The colors and fine interaction of the lines made me think of feathers on a tropical bird.
Blue N GoldThe color choice made this piece work. I loved the fractal, but it took a long time to find the color combination to bring it out.
Black HoleOne of my early fractal pieces. I immediately thought of a black hole in space when creating it.
Crossing The BeamsThe title for this one came from the original Ghostbusters movie.
JupiterInspired by images from the Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter.
MarsMy latest piece, "Mars". For this abstract, I tried to invoke some of the surface features of Mars...white polar caps, and the dark spots and lines that appear in warmer seasons on the planet.
Finding LightMade specifically for the Black & White Show 2.0 (held March 2017 at Hardy & Nance Studios), I started with the same fractal as my piece, Interstellar, and headed in a very different direction.
Harvest SunInspired by my piece, Black Hole, this was created as a companion to it. Black holes are born out of stars, so it was fitting.
CardinalI had the original fractal for a long time, but the final version didn't come together until I decided to do some layering. I'd always seen this piece as a cardinal's feather.
InterstellarInspired by the movie of the same name, this comes from the scene involving the Tesseract.
PatrioticThe "paint splatter" feel of this fractal gave me the idea to create a very abstracted American flag.
PhoenixThe colors gave me the sense of a phoemix taking flight.
Diatom (Red series #4)Inspired by the Victoria art form of arranging diatoms into intricate patterns.
Splatter (Red series #1)The first piece in my Red series, this imagines a force sending splatters of color out from the center.
Heart (Red series #2)A first date inspired the second piece in my Red series.
Blood Cell (Red series #3)The shape of this piece immediately made me think of a blood cell.
Smear (Red series #5)My imagining of a child's fingerpainting.
Focus (Red series #8)My first successful combination of two different fractals.
Veins (Red series #6)Veins flowing through a body.
Void (Red series #7)Swirling into oblivion.
Geyser (Red series #9)Submitted for an art show with a theme of "nightmares".
Wreath of Fire (Red series #10)
ButterflyThis fractal was either going to become a fairy or a butterfly. I went with butterfly. A quick piece that was finished within one day from conception to final result.
Purple FanSimple title for a quick and simple piece.
The 45thAbstract commentary regarding the 45th President of the United States (see my blog post for more).
PetalsA fractal flower.
Number 1 (White series)The first in a series strictly using white for the fractal.
Number 2 (White series)A series exclusively using black and white. Numbers 2-5 are based off the original fractal in Number 1.
Number 3 (White series)Number 2-5 in series are based off the original fractal in Number 1.
Number 4 (White series)Number 2-5 in series are based off the original fractal in Number 1.
Number 5 (White series)Number 2-5 in series are based off the original fractal in Number 1.
Flowering Branches (Blue series #1)First in a series taking fractals and giving them a painted look.
Polygon (Blue series #2)I used a poll over at my Patreon page to select the color basr for this piece.
Rainbow PrideA celebration of Pride month (June) and freedom of expression.
Two of HeartsCreated specifically for an art show, the theme was #NoHate. "Love" was the first thought I had, which led to this.
EclipseFractal abstract inspired by the first rays of light after a total eclipse.
Feeling PollockA pure abstract studying the style of Jackson Pollock.
Purple People EaterInspired by the 1958 song by Sheb Wooley. Fun, bright piece for Spring.
Spring Flowers Before April ShowersInspired by flowers in March.
SupernovaThis started as a small fractal. As I worked on several ideas, it grew into this piece, making me think of supernovas. The center is the same fractal used as the center of Focus. Both pieces were inspired by the idea of stars exploding.
BubblesOriginally created in purple, I decided a neon yellow better captured the happiness bubbles can bring to me.
RadiateEarly work that made me think of both radiation and light spiraling out from a center.
