As a composer, I approach my art musically.
My art process involves three stages of intermedia development:
First, I create richly detailed acrylic paintings - my symphonies on canvas.
Then, I extract macro photos from my paintings.
Finally, I sample these macro photos and digitally kaleidoscope them to form digital art

Mixed Media Paintings
My acrylic paintings on canvas form the foundation of the intermedia art process. These densely layered vibrant paintings are my visual scores. They explore color, movement, rhythm, and are heavily textured.
....It's like an entire symphony on canvas!
By using a DSLR camera with a macro lens to capture fingernail-size regions of the original paintings, these images become musical movements that bring to light perspectives unattainable with the naked eye.
This brings attention to parts of the painting that people might miss if casually glanced at. I find the most beautiful part of a painting in its elaborate details.
It's all in the details...
The Acrylic Macro photos are then arranged digitally into circle or diamond shape mandalas.
These mandalas merge my personal interests of music, art, and science that further explore sacred geometry, fractals, and symmetry. It is more than an image seen with our eyes; it is an actual moment in time that express both the microcosm and macrocosm simultaneously.
A measure of the finite and a road map to infinity!
As a Hawaii-born San Francisco-based artist, I continue to experiment with patterns of theme and variation that mimic nature and the cosmos in a way to inspire wonder and beauty.
