Personal Explorations

Work is play and play is work…to stay fresh and inspired I’m always experimenting with combinations of new and old artistic techniques. The “work” in this portfolio is really just “play” and reflects my never-ending search for that elusive “decisive moment” with a message.

Beauty & Ruin

80 X 36 mixed media on wrapped canvas, mounted on wood. This piece is an ongoing experiment of layers of acrylic, spray paint, and silk screens on two inverted photographs printed on canvas.

T-Shirts for fun

These screen printed t-shirts were inspired by a day dream; What if all of my best friends throughout life were all in the same 2nd grade class at the same time, what would our class picture look like??? This was the outcome. Each doodle was drawn separately then scanned, redrawn and composited in Adobe Illustrator for final output as a two-color screen.
