Owner and Artist (January 2009 – Present)
Design and produce custom murals, decorative painting, and commissioned art pieces for commercial and residential clients in
Painting, and art in general, is my method of expression and my source of enjoyment. For over a decade I have worked as a decorative painter, helping to beautify people’s homes and businesses with handpainted wall murals and faux finishes. But for the past few years, I have started focusing more and more on my own painting collections.
I love experimenting with different textures and mediums. My current work is very contemporary and abstract in nature, though I do often times find inspiration in more traditional subject matter. Plasterworks is my latest series, and it focuses on different plastering techniques combined with other three-dimensional media. In these pieces, I draw inspiration mainly from nature; from the textures you find in wood to the patterns you find in flowers.
I am also heavily inspired by color, and how its use can set the tone for a piece. Or how certain color combinations evoke a feeling, make a statement, or bring about a memory of a favorite place or time of year.
My new work also studies light, and how it can affect a piece. I love combining different sheens into one piece, mainly through my use of metallics and/or glass. This play on sheen causes the piece to constantly change throughout the day and night, as the lighting changes.
$250 minimum charge for all decorative painting projects, including murals and faux painting. Commissioned artwork is $0.70 per square inch.
