Ready to Hang

Sometimes the best scenes aren't at street level. The strength of this image is its simplicity so I decided to highlight that and hand print it on wood. The sides of the panel are painted white with a very delicate border on the edges, giving the work a finished contemporary look. Wired and ready to hang.

If you are drawn to my art you probably share the belief that public transportation can be the best way to get familiar with a new city. You allow yourself to get lost in hopes of finding offbeat neighborhoods with the best falafel in town. You love museums but you know that sometimes the most relevant art is found in an alley behind the museum parking lot. 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. These 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, so the process of layering materials like acrylic paint and paper emulates things that reveal character – strong color, images and texture – adding details 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.
