His portfolios contain examples of work from the past four decades. These include paintings, drawings, fine art prints, collages, and digital art.

He describes one of his most recent paintings, Lone Star, as:

“… a work that depicts events which took place in Fort Worth and Dallas on November 22, 1963. It is one of a series of historical paintings that I have made which are influenced by seismic events that have taken place during my lifetime. These works incorporate images taken from the public domain as well as those I have developed from observation.”
