For thousands of years pyrographic art, or wood burning, has found its way through cultures around the world. The diversity and beauty of this art can only be described by viewing the works of the many artists who have focused their talents towards it. Its a true art which takes on many forms in detail, tone and overall appearance.
In a very unique combination, the images you see here combine this ancient form of art with techniques in oil painting, watercolor and wood working. These techniques combine a very unforgiving combination of sketching, oil painting, watercolor and wood burning. The results are stunning examples of intricately detailed works of art that become more interesting the closer one gets.
As a person who has always had great respect for the ocean and the things that surround it, I've come to enjoy my work as an extension of my interests. The diversity of the ocean and the things that surround it offer an un-ending abundance of beauty and subject matter. The mixture of natural tones and details in pyrography lend themselves perfectly to a nautical setting. ......JM
