As a small child, I 'stared through' a wall paper pattern behind my homework desk. The clowns and roses looked a mile away and a thousand feet tall. I remember how visually exciting and fun it was to 'stare through' the computer-composed static and see three dimensional figures jump out of pages or off of posters. I also remember thinking 'they need more color'.
I am a land surveyor by trade, and have been lucky to live and work in the Flathead Valley for over 20 years. Since the fabulous recession hit in the fall of 07 there hasn't been much land surveying work, so I have taken to painting stereograms full time.
Patterns are everywhere. Earth is a strikingly beautiful place - especially north west Montana.
I think my paintings are great to look at, but amazing to look through, and that's what counts. I hope you enjoy them....
