( 2015 ) Adobe Illustrator ' The Waterlily '
The Waterlily is perennial aquatic, up to two meters long and grows in still waters, lakes, and ponds. The flower consists of four cepals and numerous petals, sometimes with more than forty of them. They grow in fresh water throughout most of Europe and are protected in many European countries but are on the decline in numbers, because water courses and bodies of water are being poluted by wastes and runoffs from fields. Waterlillies are very sensitive to changes in the chemical composition of their aquatic habitat, and it is necessary to protect the cleanliness of the waters where they grow.

The website profiles and showcases more than a decade of selected pieces that comprise a combination of Fine Art, Surface Design, Graphic Design, and Illustration. All works (but not limited to) that you see were executed between January of 2000 to present. There is a substantial body of work which was done prior to this period in the 1990's which was photographed and made into slide format. A lot of those will be converted over to digital format within the next month. As you explore my website, you will get a feeling for my versatility in two-dimensional design, my passion for both realistic subject matter, and the abstract within the Fine Art medium of Drawing, to the capabilities of rich surface design and my zeal for creating patterns in developing digital stationery for numerous consumer products to be marketed in print and fabric.
