As you can see I love everything ancient Egyptian.  Artistically it was a natural place to start.  I love realism because it's brutally honest.  It connects us with the past, fascinates us & moves us forward.  I've had several exhibits at the Kenosha Public Museum in their treasures gallery & teach there part time.  If you really want to understand my philosophy, personal training and ideas you can click on the button for my artist's statement:
More About Me
If you don't care much about my philosophy you can see some links about my exhibits via some news clips & here.  I was also a finalist for a sculpture centerpiece in California and continue to humbly accumulate accolades from various groups as the years go by.

Robes of an Egyptian Priest

I fabricated this from a REAL antique Amur leopard hide.
The lining has a silk screened pattern of gold stars. The gilt
head is carved from a single piece of fir with enamled inlays.
The claws are carved from bone & are individually 
stitched in place. These robes are worn over the shoulder &
can be seen in all manner of ritual use throughout
pharaonic times. This example is virtually unique today.

Ancient Egypt is more than a passion. I've spent a lifetime of serious study of the culture.

The heart of the deceased, where the soul resides, is weighed against the feather of truth.

Text from transforming into a divine hawk
Below is a 4-meter (14') papyrus scroll I created of the Book of the Dead. It is called the Am-Duat in Egyptian meaning "What is in the Underworld." This version has only 8 of the 183 known chapters. The text & vignettes come from the Ani papyrus but with grammatic corrections. It took months for me to make this using traditional pigments & reed pens. It certainly gives one an idea of how lenghty a process it was for ancient Egyptians in this life to get into the next!
