The inkjet prints are all 11.5 x 15.25 inches, printed in editions of 50 with an Epson Stylus Photo R2880 or an Epson Stylus Pro 3800 on Epson Hot Press Natural paper.

The paintings are acrylic on canvas. Some of them contain titles or direct depictions of Australian Aboriginal paintings whose artists have been have been credited on the back of the canvases. The titles are "Honey Ant Dreaming", "Kangaroo Men Dreaming", and "Water Dreaming". "Water Dreaming" includes a detail of that work and the book where I saw the piece.

The photographs are a collection of things I did in art school in 1978 and 1979. They were shot with fiIm and printed in a student darkroom with varying results. Few of these prints remain. In 2014 I created a portfolio of this material as inkjet prints sized 11.5 x 15.25 inches on Epson Hot Press Natural paper in editions of 50. I have also added a few monochrome ideas starting in 2014.
