I am attracted to texture, color and pattern -
especially in unexpected combinations.
I’m fascinated by the effect of time on metal
and wood surfaces. I love working with tools.
I have a passion for rusty junk and I have
a staggering collection of old tins.
I have a degree in Visual Communications
and for the past 15 years or so, I have worked
professionally in print media, and as a
typography and graphic design instructor.
I love working with tools. I have a passion for rusty junk and have a staggering collection of old tins. This assortment, using recycled vintage metal, wood and an occasional found object, is titled: Lovely Bugs, Nautical Souvenirs and Watchful Eyes. It was inspired by the diverse colors and forms found in butterflies, moths and insects. The traditions and symbology of vintage sailor’s tattoos, and a curiosity of the mystical world
I picked up my pens and pencils again about 3 years ago after a very long absence. I like to draw and doodle. And I like to share. So here you are some of the results. I hope you enjoy them. Phil
