Welcome to my Online Gallery/Store

For nearly 30 years I've been creating images using 3D modeling software. Poser and Strata 3D CX are the two I use most often. In 1996, I discovered lenticular imaging, which was the perfect output medium to display my 3D works as 3D prints.

Lenticular imaging is a printing process that uses a special lens sheet to "play" back a series of images. These could be videos or animations or a series of stereo views of a scene. Which is where I have focused my efforts on providing 3D viewable versions of my artworks.

I choose to backlight my 3D transparencies as it is the most powerful way to present lenticular images. The lens surface is highly reflective, so backlighting also overcomes this problem.

Placing an artwork that requires power, is challenging, as you rarely have outlets where you want to hang your art. Besides cords dangling down are unsightly.

I've eliminated the need for a power cord, (although one is included), by using a lithium ion rechargeable battery pack. The pack can be removed from the back of the frame for recharging or also by using the included power supply to charge it in place. The use of a motion sensor extends the life of the battery considerably. I've had works last 10-12 days in my studio while I'm busy working in there.

If you want it lit all the time, and don't mind the cords, just disconnect the leads from the LED panel from the rest of the wiring and plug the included charger into the lead from the LED panel. Then just plug the charger into an outlet.

I highly recommend purchasing a second battery, which will allow you to simply keep swapping one for the other, so you have no down time for recharging.

A dimmer with a remote is also included to allow adjusting the brightness and turning the unit on/off, as well as several modes.

A number of parts for these backlight displays were designed and manufactured right here in my studio, using the same 3D software used to create many of my 3D images. The holder for the battery on the back was 3D printed, as were the "blinders" which are installed around the motion sensor on the front of the frame. Finally, the laser engraved aluminum signature tags were done with the laser module for the same 3D printer.
