“As an artist, I am compelled to reconstruct the past using my traditional art tools and modern software technology. It is my hope that artistically reconstructing and repatriating the past will help us understand lost history... a responsibility dedicated to future generations.”

A PERPETUAL JOURNEY WITH CIAMAR STUDIO
CONCEPT ART AND DESIGN SERVICES
Florida's coastlines are spectacular and it seems that most people find solace on or near the ocean and its beaches. However, I find my spirit-filled moments and creativity were derived from Florida's mysterious interior....the Everglades.
Since 2009 my artistic expression turned toward the process of creating a story/animation that has taken me on a journey through Florida and with that a discovery of ancient people's such as the Calusa Indians or "Shell People" who lived along the Gulf coast and inner waterways 2000 years ago.
This ongoing prolific creative quest has fleshed out the story, characters, and environment. Diversity within the grassy waters has become a tantalizing resource for concept sketches, paintings, sculpture, digital visuals, photography, video, literary enhancement and travel.
Executing all of this raw conceptual work, along with field research, innately spawned many questions and creative side roads emerged.
Research has included ancient midden mound complexes in Florida, the discovery of the Mound Builders and Tall Ones throughout North America, and the ancients with elongated skulls found throughout the planet.
My life journey is immersed in the culture, history and spiritual energies of ancient native tribes of North America and is extending worldwide through my current projects.
Over the last seven years I have devoted much of my time creating 3D digital sculpture reconstruction/interpretations of our mysterious ancestors.
I became intrigued by the repatriation of our lost ancients through my friend and adopted mother Hai-mecha Eunka (Running Moccasins) Turtle clan, Maria Pearson, Yankton Sioux tribe, who initiated the NAGPRA movement.
Maria worked diligently for the Native American people in Iowa and around the country. Her work in Iowa helped pass NAGPRA, Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990.
My connection with the ancient ones has me compelled to follow in Maria’s footsteps by creating artistic images of the ancient indigenous peoples of North America.
Utilizing my art skills and tools has helped assist alternative researchers around the world with forensic reconstruction, giving the ancients a face to aid in the understanding of physical anomalies.
3d digital sculpture reconstruction/interpretations have spawned works that include Bic pen on-site journal sketches, a substantial amount of digital visuals, and large scale canvas paintings. Through this current body of work I am reconstructing the past, revealing personalities in the flesh that may guide us to a greater understanding of the lost history of North America, and Mother Earth.
