Besides playing with fractals, I work on music with my husband, composer John Mitchell, and maintain our website, www.abm-enterprises.net (the abm stands for Adolf, Benjamin and Matthew, three of our cats). Free 800 x 600 pixel versions of my fractals for desktop wallpaper are at www.abm-enterprises.net/wallpaper.html
I was born in the US, Washington State, but have traveled and lived in other countries. Educated at Stanford and UCLA (Romance languages and linguistics).
There is a lot of stuff here now that is not fractal! A couple of years ago I got obsessed with making the best reproductions I could of the paintings of Vincent van Gogh. Then a friend introduced me to late 19th century poster art, the work of Ernst Haeckel, and on and on.
Recently I got a request that made me rethink licensing images for offline use, or on websites. Mostly I don't do it anymore, but sometimes make exceptions - for people who offer a lot of money, are very polite, or want to use the image/s in a movie or TV show.
This is an angel from the Ghent Alterpiece, a 15th-century Early Flemish polyptych panel painting. I designed it for a friend who is a scholar in Renaissance literature. She emailed me that it is the finest ornament she's ever had.
I designed this as a Christmas card for our parish priest, who was visiting his family in Ghana at Christmas but got it in his mail when he returned to LA. He told me that he loves it and is thinking about having it framed.
