Spencer’s Berserker is back in the shop in all of its primal angst glory!

This light switch plate is composed of 2 images with corner squares of hand painted checkerboard squares with 4mm onyx cabochons.

The central image is of “the Berserker”, one of the amazingly expressive ancient Lewis Chessmen. The border motif pattern was created from a small detail of an illustration in the “Book of Games,” Circa 1280 A.D..

My plate is named Spencer’s Berserker for young U.S. chess master Spencer Finegold, who inspired the piece.

One of my very favorite new additions to the Switchplate Art collection is  Cats .


This unique light switch cover is simply the cat’s meow! – the purrrrr-fect addition to your feline friendly abode! A great gift for the cat lover on your shopping list!

The image is of 2 interlinking cats, a sleek amber eyed grey representing dusk, and a sunny green eyed golden tabby, representing dawn.

I designed the art designed for the light switch plate, and executed the original art work in watercolor. The painting was scanned at high resolution, scaled to the plate size and archivally printed.

The Light switch cover can be mounted with either side up – dawn or dusk – you get to choose.

Election 2016: After Word…


It’s a time to draw strength from hopeful, sustaining, inspiring thoughts. This one does it for me, so yesterday, as post-election therapy, I made it into a poster and added it to my gallery shop, Serra Studiospace , to share with others.

At the shop you will find very inexpensive printing options for posters, prints, pillows, tote bags, etc., as well as a wide array of more pricy framing options, all fulfilled by Fine Arts America [They make excellent, high-quality products] . Perfect for a bit of Retail Therapy, If you’re so inclined…

I also posted the image in this blog with no watermark, so if you are too down in the dumps to shop, feel free to copy, paste and share as much as you like.
