Macabre

Skulls the book  Drawings  Prints  Paintings Halloween Postcards Book of Dead Things


All my life there has been a fascination with dead things.  Not necessarily death, but dead.   I have always picked up and looked at dead bugs animals etc.  This interest continued into my artwork with photos of dead animals and drawings, and painting of dead things as well as human skulls and skeletons. 

On this page I have gathered together a grouping of this macabre artwork, though I give you none of my photographs of dead things.  Those are my sketchbook or notes and are not for public review.
