Digital Art


My fractal images are rendered to a desired size, which preserves details of intricate structures. I produce my designs in limited editions of 54, and print them in sizes up to 17” x 22” on an Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer using archival inks and papers. Anything larger in size is submitted to a commercial printer. Please contact me with your size requirements.

Artist Statement

From being a geologist and an educator, I sashayed into creating digital fractal art in 2006. Fractals are geometric figures generated from mathematical algorithms that create characteristic shapes over a large range of scales. Seeing mathematics transformed from abstract equations into abstract explosions of colors, textures, and intricate designs feeds my senses and appeals to my geek instinct. I also take courses in collage to make art using more traditional materials (and find homes for numerous preliminary fractal images!).

When I go to the computer to create a fractal image, I rarely know ahead of time what will emerge, but instead try to convert a mood or narrative into a visual representation. I’m inspired by ideas from science, principles of spatial arrangements from ikebana (Japanese flower arranging), and notions of dynamic stillness and balance from yoga. In honor of a lifelong observation of physical landscapes, I’m now motivated to create private spiritual spaces of balance, harmony, and creative play.
