I've been drawing and painting since the early '70s but only pursued it as a hobby until recently. I do mostly stylized florals, whimsical scenes, and some fractal generation and manipulations. I dabble with anime and realistic portraits. Most of my work is full of vibrant colors and dark backgrounds. The colors tend toward the cool side of the spectrum which I attribute to my synesthesia - certain colors trigger headaches and other distasteful side effects. Recently branched out into vector graphics and have been incorporating that into my artwork and a side job as a graphic artist.
