My mixed media is developed from abundant natural resources which I call TeraStone. Water is added to this organic medium and blended to a thick consistency. Then spread out onto quality stretched canvas. I sculpt, carve and cut the Terastone I developed into abstract or symbolic forms. Formulated from different types of ash, stone, and other organic materials that are non-toxic.  It takes two to five hours to sculpt the medium depending on size of canvas. Each piece dries flat and hardends like clay and looks like stone. I lightly sand each work and give it a primer of gesso.  The final creative process is painting layer upon layer of acrylic paint or bio paint to achieve a harmonious blend of colors.

Natural abundant non-toxic materials are used in the Terastone medium.  Generally I use acrylic paints, standard fixatives and primer for a 95% green work of art.

 Organic paint and fixative is available for a completely organic biodegradable work of art. Bio art will leave no footprint and will decompose over time. Earth friendly art with heart.

Conservation of our land and natural resources is vital to the quality of life we have. To honor and respect our natural resources in a symbolic form of artistic expression is my mission statement. To bring awareness to environmental conservation and recycling projects through art.

My earth friendly artwork can have the likeness of stone hieroglyphic's, masonry, stela's, petroglyph's and symbols from ancient cultures. It was inspired by visiting archeological sites and observing the composition of stones & rocks in natural environments. My work contains the essence of the elements Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Wood & Metal.  I mold, carve and sculpt the medium. I honor the planet and all her relations in a symbolic form of art.
