Alleys & Ruins archives


I've been shooting the Alleys & Ruins series for almost 30 years - they are my original Light Paintings! ...and there are over 150 images in the series. The Archive gallery is a selection of images that are no longer in regular rotation, but they are either a favorite of mine (and maybe yours?), or they have a great back story or both. 

Bring my fantasy world into your life!

My vibrant art pieces are conversation-starters that will add depth and stunning color to your home, office or public space
