About the Artist
I make art of plants, animals, and mountains. I do it using two mediums: stencil print and three-dimensional cardboard relief. My work is a lot of western iconoscapes—pop-serenity visuals from destinations in the middle of nowhere. I think my pieces imbibe a sense of inner harmony and happiness, peaceful resilience, and expansion. It’s soul-journeyer stuff that you could easily find hanging anywhere from a common space or bedroom of a home, to 1970s-decor hotel lobby or the office of a Wall Street power broker.
I design vibrant and colourful scenes of the American Southwest and its native flora and fauna. My mediums include hand-cut stencil prints, three-dimensional cardboard relief, and screenprints. I create hand-cut stencils and build composite images using layers of color that I apply with a foam roller. Hand-cut stencil prints enable me to produce original prints of a single design at volume. Each print is one-of-a-kind and has a hand-printed quality and texture with nuance and an evolving color palette. Using parallel design and stylistic themes to the stencil work, cardboard relief creates a multi-dimensional experience. I cut, score, and glue acid-free cardboard, and build it into a shadow box frame for a lifelike image with immersive depth.
