Keeping up to date with the latest 3D software technology, graphic programs, training and monthly website fees can certainly add up. I try my best to provide my visitors with the best experience possible and pay for it all out of my own pocket. I am 3 versions behind in Cinema 4D, 2 versions behind in Rhino 3D and I am currently looking at an ocean simulation package for realistic renderings.If you would like to assist and support my efforts please use the donate button below to make a contribution.

passion for ships and shipwrecks all started back in 1972 (4 years old)
when I first saw the Poseidon Adventure. It was a film about an Ocean
Liner that was struck by a 90ft. tidal wave and capsized. Since that
day I learned about Titanic, Andrea Dorea, Morro Castle etc. In
kindergarten I would draw pictures of the Titanic sinking - I can
remember it like it was yesterday. In 1975 I bought my first book on
the Titanic "A Night to Remember - by Walter Lord" published in 1957.
Let's just say I was a Titanic enthusiast before it was fashionably
made so by the James Cameron's movie. I even have a large piece of
Titanic coal which I proudly display beside my Titanic painting.
In my Elementary School years I became fascinated with warships and studied them intently every day. A few of my school friends shared the same passion. My favourite ships were of the Italian Navy (Vittorio Veneto), but I was intrigued by all ships.
I got away from all this in high school, and didn’t come back to it until I was in my 30’s. I was looking for a hobby and remembered just how much I loved ships. The excitement came back to me like turning on a light switch.
In late 2003 I took my artistic talents to the next level and started learning how to draw ships in 3D. Doing so combined my passion for model making with my other passion of drawing. It was a perfect combination! I am completely self taught, and getting better by the day.
