*The artwork is printed on canvas and the hand stretched and stapled to a one inch interior wood frame. The wood frame and staples are not visible from the front or sides. This creates a nice frame for hanging the artwork. You may also choose Artfinder framing service to add an decorative exterior wood frame of your choosing.

Artist Process

Each piece of art is crafted with several layers of different textures and mediums. This process has been the focus of my work for the past four years. It involves painting, design, photography and digital editing.

When I create I feel several emotions at play. I look at the face or figure to determine if there is a story to be told. Inevitably, there always is. I feel drawn to that person in an instinctual way.

"Art is like a story. It has a beginning, a middle and an end. The reader or viewer might identify with something in the story or picture. Then, the artwork is like a leaf flowing freely down the river. They can follow it and see where it takes them."

Each layer of texture adds depth to the piece. I photograph my acrylic paintings, ink paintings, and textures in nature. I use these as digital layers to create the final piece.

As I add layers, a hidden version reveals itself to me. I have felt and seen many emotions surface that were not there in the original photo. Sometimes fear is exposed or joy, ecstasy or sorrow. We are all human. It matters not what our outward appearance is. The soul is always striving to reveal itself just under the surface.

My hope is that people view my art as a vehicle for their own emotions to roam freely. The vulnerability of the person pictured in the artwork allows us to be vulnerable. Therefore, identifying with each piece in there own unique way.

The final art work is designed in a photo editor program. The image is then printed on either paper or canvas.

*Artwork will be printed with my signature and corresponding limited edition number.
