RA's Story

Two words that primarily defined the creation of Rendition Arts LLC - coalescence and serendipity. Coalescence in the sense that many elements of my life and interests seemed to culminate at this juncture in time and serendipity in the sense of how many necessary things came together at the same time to make it all possible.


Archaeology, anthropology , geology, photography, exploring, art and a fundamental inquisitiveness about man's journey all played a critical part in bringing this artwork forward in time enabling me to translate it into the museum-quality metal wall art as shown herein. 

RA's Objectives
In searching for and photographing petroglyphs over the years there were many designs that depicted common observations such as snakes, birds, lizards etc.  Of primary interest to me were the abstract designs as well as common things portrayed artistically. What I have captured and  brought forward in time are  these designs....rock art designs - the emergence of artistic expression, the beginnings of culture. 
​It has been my intent to render these prehistoric designs as accurately as possible while adjusting for various factors to offer attractive wall art to meet today's decorating needs, to be displayed indoors or outdoors.

I feel it is both a privilege and a responsibility to represent these prehistoric designs and to see that full recognition is given to their creators, specifically for their artistic abilities.

In light of that, I have made donations of my artwork, and am continuing to do so in placing them at sites of high regard. To date:
