Welcome to Nightwing Studio. The name “Nightwing” is the title of a painting of a raven, the first piece of mine to be accepted into a national juried exhibition, years ago. Naturally, the name remains close to my heart.

Ravens and crows form my principal imagery, though I also gain inspiration from other wildlife. For me, the birds often display human-like behavior.

Recreation in the canyonlands of the American Southwest have led me to develop a "plein air" portfolio.

Years of scuba diving experiences are the basis of my encaustic collection.

Direct observation of the natural world, and continued experimentation with my materials, keep the work fresh and exciting for me.
