Microchip Paintings via MAKE.

“Smaller and Faster” has replaced “Bigger and Better” as the leading catchphrase of commodities. I reflect this with my miniature paintings on microchips. From wild plants and animals to human tools and portraits, the range of subjects is diverse.  I seek poetic images which raise questions and strike metaphorical chords when painted on microchips -the building blocks of the digital age. 

The biggest frontier I see today is where nature and technology overlap.  Mankind and our extensions (i.e. computers, cities) are essentially natural occurrences, thus move and evolve in the same dynamic patterns as the rest of the world.  My paintings on microchips are an attempt to broaden our perspective of modern electronics and acknowledge their position as extensions of the mind and its sentimental qualities.

This is an also homage to classical miniature paintings.  Paint is usually oil applied with tiny brushes -some of which I craft by hand using my own eyelashes. The size of these works is usually a square inch or less, so magnifying glasses are supplied at gallery showings.  


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
