oil paint on marquetry, figurative neo-symbolist


around the turn of the millennium while living in Hawaii, I became interested in marquetry and began making tables using the abstract nature designs of traditional Hawaiian quilts using local woods. I liked it so much I moved to Italy and became th sole apprentice of Daniele Parasecolo, one of Italy's foremost marquetriers, for two years. Since then I have lived between Italy and Hawaii, and recently opened a studio in the Denver Santa Fe Art District, developing a style of my own which is a combination of marquetry and oil painting.

I love the combination of wood and figural work- there are so many layers of meaning and metaphor.

Thanks for your comment.
Your work has a very natural beauty. I like how you use the woodgrain within your pictures.
Reminds me of Gauguin and Tahiti.
