Night Hunter

Night Hunter (2004)

This is a painting I did for my mother, who is very interested in Native American artwork and kachinas. The painting, called "Night Hunter", is of a wolf kachina drawing a bow. I seldom work with acrylics, but I am very pleased with how this turned out. The painting is fairly large too, 22" by 15".


Babybird (2001)

This was inspired by part of the lyrics to a beautiful Wallflowers song called "Babybird": "When all my colors fade and my wings, they turn to leather, I'll know the reason why God let me get older, when all my days are through and I fly these hills no longer, I'll lay beneath the stars and watch you flying over." It's done in acrylic, and is pretty abstract.

Michael Ward

Michael Ward (2001)

Almost definitely the best picture of a human I've ever done. Mike was the lead guitarist for the Wallflowers for quite a while.

Jakob Dylan

Jakob Dylan (2001)

One of the best drawings of a human I've ever done, and certainly the best one in color. Jakob is the lead singer of the band, the Wallflowers.

Fruit Bowl

A fruit bowl, modeled in 3D Studio Max.


Tree (2000)

A tree, modeled in 3D Studio Max.


Perspective (2000)

This is a two point perspective of a large building from a bird's eye point of view. This was an assignment for a college class, inked and shaded in colored pencil.

Horse and Rider

Horse and Rider (2000)

A series of three paintings of the same subject, for a color theory class in college. The first uses a full range of values, the second is 'high-key' (from gray to white values), and the third 'low-key' (from gray to black values). All three are gouache. Here are links to the remaining two, or you can cycle through them using the left and right buttons on your keyboard once the image opens up: 2 - 3

Desert Landscape

Desert Landscape (2000)

This is a series of four paintings of the same landscape, for a color theory class in college. The first uses complimentary colors, the second, analagous colors, the third is an achromatic charcoal rendering, and the fourth a "wash" (watered down to simulate watercolors), again with complimentary colors. All except the third one are done with gouache. Here are links to the other three, or you can cycle through them using the left and right buttons on your keyboard once the image opens up: 2 - 3 - 4

Native American Girl

Native American Girl (2000)

Drawn from a small photo using a grid; part of the assignment was to leave seven grid squares white in a way that worked compositionally. I'm very proud of how this one turned out. The drawing is fairly large (11" by 14"), done in graphite, for a drawing class in college.

Opposites: Trees

Opposites: Trees (2000)

This was a design assignment, to use black and white only to create contrasting images, in the two spaces on the back of a semi truck. This was my first solution, trees in summer and winter, day and night.

Opposites: Life and Death

Opposites: Life and Death (2000)

My second solution to the assignment above. One side is a dying soldier on a battlefield, the other side, a Native American medicine man, a healer. The contrast spans life and death, youth and age, and two different cultures, maybe around the same time.

Deer Dancer

Deer Dancer (2000)

A grayscale marker study based on a photo of a Native American deer dancer, for a drawing class in college.


Plant (2000)

A graphite study of a plant, for a drawing class in college. It was a big image, too — it isn't easy to scan an 18" by 24" drawing on an 8 ½" by 12" scanner!

Neil Diamond

Neil Diamond (1999)

A drawing of a young Neil Diamond that I did for my mother. We are both pretty big fans of his.

Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon (1999)

A drawing of the Grand Canyon, done in watercolor pencil.


Gargoyle (1998)

A graphite drawing of a gargoyle.

Hototo Kachina

Hototo Kachina (1998)

A marker sketch of one of my kachinas. My mother liked it so much that she got it framed — unfortunately in a frame too complex to take apart so I could get a better scan of it!
