– Words and Images –

Welcome to my website.  As an author and an artist, I have included a bookshelf and a gallery.  Few pictures remain.  Years ago, a complex relationship with the nude drove me to render the figure by literary means.  Three novels have resulted.   

The first two projects were attributed to Daniel “D.C.” Morrister, a fictional character from my work.  In So Many Words recounted his psychosis.  I later said that he wrote The Sketchbook while listing myself as the illustratorStill, I didn’t promote either title.

My latest effort, IMAGE, is a tale of horror.  In it, I attempt to portray the body by focusing on its absence.  Antique objects are haunted instead and depicted throughout the book.  I have admitted to writing and am more actively publicizing it.  A website was a part of the plan.  It’s a short trip into a past devoted to words and images.  Thank you for stopping by.
