Most paintings, including "Strata" on the left are done in casein and tempera, two of the oldest painting media in existence. They dry to a matte finish, somewhat similar to that of a fresco, and are protected with matte varnish.

To achieve a sense of time's passage, the paintings are scraped and abraded with sandpaper and x-acto blades. The work is on framed archival panels, and currently ranges in size up to 66"x84". In addition to the work sold by the galleries listed, commissions are undertaken through the galleries for specific clients and sites.
