My paintings focus on figures and portraiture, often in both oil and encaustic. In technique and in style these paintings absorb the influences of classical painting, including particularly the wax mummy portraits of Coptic Egypt. I also like to draw comics – my latest book of illustrations, Other Cities, Other Shores, is currently in print and I have an upcoming webcomic project, The Tulip Era, which will be online soon.
