They are hand signed and numbered in editions ranging from 50 pieces to 200.
Some thoughts on my style...

Many years ago I was fortunate to have stumbled upon a style of working that allowed me a break in rendering up artwork that just represented images I liked, to images that expressed my longing for a feeling I had once gotten on stage...that dreamlike, in the moment, moment..."
