My interest and curiosity for fractals began in 1998. Since then, what began as a hobby has developed into a passion for creating these colorful works.

I strive to create abstract images that "suggest" real and surreal scenes and objects. My goal is to stimulate the viewer's imagination into seeing further interpretations beyond the abstract image.

I hope you find fun, pleasure, curiosity and beauty in my art. Please feel free to share your thoughts and comments with me!!

My Gallery III is dedicated to digital photography. I will occasionally post some of my favorite shots there. Many will be digitally altered or enhanced using various digital filters and coloring tools.

Gallery IV is dedicated to fractal kaleidoscpope images.

Gallery V is dedicated to experimental digital pin-hole photography, High
Dynamic Range images, and other digital experiments.

Gallery VI is dedicated primarily to patterns consisting of fractals.

Gallery VII is dedicated to photograhs taken in Ireland in 2014.
