Animator, Painter, Photographer, Filmmaker

Welcome to my online gallery of eclectic imagery! I am known for stop-motion and computer character animation, as well as a wide variety of creations in the visual arts. Here are examples of visionary painting and life drawing, 3D stereo anaglyph and landscape photography, sculpture and model making for the special effects industry, plus time-lapse and avant-garde experimental films, all for your viewing pleasure.

A fascinating section is the 3-D STEREO PHOTOS showcase. Subjects include Movie Magic special effects, the popular cult classic The Nightmare Before Christmas, beautiful Glamour girls, the spice of Variety, spectacular Nature images, magical scenes from Stop-Motion movies, and the Digital revolution. They are presented in the anaglyph format which requires red/cyan 3D glasses.
