Artist's description:

Mixed Media Original: Lying in Wait

This original piece of artwork features one of the buildings on the expansive and largely abandoned Stanley Tools Factory in New Britain, CT. Sadly most of the grounds are in the process of being demolished despite community and preservation group efforts to save the historic buildings. This building in particular is currently on hold as plans to adaptively reuse the building are in talks. Although rustic, this building has lovely architectural details inside and out.

This mixed media painting is layered with my photography of the building, vintage documents, acrylic paints and oil pastels to create a unique, vintage inspired piece of industrial art. This is the one-of-a kind original, not a reproduction.


• artwork measures 6"x6" on a wood block
• block is then set within a 7"x7"x1.5" natural wood floating frame
• backside is signed, titled and comes with artist info
• sealed with UV protective matte varnish
• wired and ready to hang

Room views may not be to scale and colors may vary from monitor to monitor.

Inspired by my passion for history, old things and landscapes, my photography marries beautifully with mixed media techniques including acrylic paints, inks and collage. Each piece tells a unique story through the quiet scenes captured, the vintage ephemera incorporated and the touches of paint that when combined creates a new piece that is greater than the sum of its parts.

My work is vintage inspired, architecturally inspired and nature inspired. I create art that speaks to wide open spaces, quiet places and simpler times.
