About Me

I sometimes feel that I’m impersonating the dark unconscious of the whole human race.”

          Vincent Price  (1911-1993)

Welcome to the Far Backroom, the seat of my artistic expression in the glittering wilds of Cyberia!

“It is as much fin to scare as to be scared.”

I am a lifelong ancestral worker, syncretic perspective crafter, and artisanal soul historian adept at world building with the written word.   My works explore and expand the shadowy facets of our cultural traditions and the crippling brand they sear into the hide of the present.  Story telling is my primary medium, but I augment my creations with traditional art mediums like pastels, pencil, and acrylics.   Occasionally, I provide 3D visuals in the form of miniature room boxes.  I also explore the influence of curated music lists on the perception of a narrative.
