Ready to Hang
A child in a center of the frame overlooks her shoulder as the wave is coming toward her. Two adults on the edge of the picture appear to be the child's parents. While a guy throws his ring, both mother and her daughter look at the oncoming wave helplessly.
It is a depiction of the marriage that is about to break and the possible emotional turmoil a child would face in near future.
My formal college-level training started at Art Center College of Design back in 1998. Studying under admired artists such as Scott Hess, Jeffrey Smith, Lorrie Madden, and Gary Meyer was an exceptional learning experience. All of these teachers had one goal in mind: to help me tell a story in visual language. To this date, I still try to incorporate the lessons they taught me into my image-making process. From 2000 to 2013, my artworks were represented by companies such as Disney, Hasbro, EA, DreamWorks, Forever 21, and Mattel. The nature of the works ranged from cartoons to photorealistic renderings within the rules bounded by design theory. By doing this task, I acquired visual vocabularies that satisfied mass audiences in modern popular culture. When I paint, I try to put some of this knowledge into my artwork. Currently, I am in the process of getting my masters degree in art searching for better solutions in the way we communicate visually.
