"House of Glass" is my latest pulp painted architectural image. The balance and minimalism of Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House influenced the "white school" of Japanese architecture. View more details on Etsy.

 "Happy Friend" is my latest pulp painted bird. The Northern or yellow-shafted flicker is a symbol of happiness and friendship. View it on Etsy

"Flying Fox No.2" is my latest pulp painted bat. It incorporates eucalyptus into the pulp as these bats feed on eucalyptus and are also effective pollinators. View it on Etsy.

My artist book, "Fanny and the Doll Corpse," a historical fiction book inspired by Chicagoan Frances Glessner Lee, has been acquired by the Smithsonian Institution.  View more details on Etsy.

Three of my architectural pulp paintings are on display at McGarryBowen Advertising Agency in Chicago. Thank you to State of the Art for coordinating this and bringing art to Chicago's public and private spaces.
