Exploring some new ideas in the studio! Fine Art inspired by cosmology + spirituality. Work in progress!
The title of this series, Standing on the Shore of the Cosmic Ocean, references the opening chapter of Carl Sagan’s groundbreaking book Cosmos. As it wove together science, art, history, anthropology and philosophy, Cosmos fed my curiosity about our place in the universe in a way that continues to this day.
I’m an artist and two-time cancer survivor who believes he’s a two-time cancer survivor because he’s an artist. I make abstract photographs, immersive video installations and ambient sound environments. Inspired by modern science and the myths of ancient spirituality, my art explores the mysteries of the universe. If you’ve ever looked up at the stars and felt a sense of awe, you understand what motivates me to make art and music.
My BS in Psychology is from Hobart, my MFA in Photography from the Hartford Art School. My work has won awards and been widely exhibited. I use art, music, workshops, creativity coaching and lecturing to share the healing power of creativity with others.
