Ready to Hang

This guy's got swagger and I imagine he's having a pretty awesome day, so I wanted this mixed media piece to be as bold and expressive as the subject's look. The original image is layered over acrylic paint, used to create the colorful abstract background. This contemporary mixed media work on canvas includes a custom wood floater frame that is wired and ready to hang.

Exploration = inspiration. What a thrill to get lost in a new city or to discover a side of town you've never experienced. It's the untold story I hope to find that gets me excited – to imagine the history behind a place stripped of its facade and to discover beauty where its least expected. The most inspiring places are real, sometimes grimy, often boldly colorful, and always loaded with layers of raw character. To reveal that character I embrace flaws, even emphasize them, with techniques that make sporadic imperfections an integral part of the final piece. It all works best when I create intuitively. The process of layering and manipulating materials, like acrylic paint and paper to emulate the effects of time, adds texture and color that help tell our unique stories. Currently based in the Palm Springs area, you'll find me cruising the streets on a sporty blue bike. I have been a featured artist in CB2 stores and I primarily show my work through online galleries, as wells as in various venues in California, including SFMOMA Artist Gallery at Fort Mason.
