Hi there, thanks for looking around. My paintings are layers of geometric patterns, stripes and schmears of vivid colors. Things eventually quiet down to create more minimal and subtle paintings. Textile designs by Native American Indians and Bauhaus master Gunta Stolzl have served as spring boards for new paintings. The emphasis is on materials, process and pure visual pleasure. Each painting begins with general motifs and colors in mind but are never fully planned. It’s only through trial and error that the paintings slowly evolve into their own. I've also been making many color sketches & pattern based drawings lately. Something to give me a break from more complex paintings & just to play with color.
I'm available for commissions, just drop me a line.
I license images of my work & create custom designs for a variety of goods including: prints, fabric, wall paper, sporting goods, cosmetic packaging, etc. I’m always interested in exploring new ways my paintings can be printed on surfaces. Especially in fashion and home decor.
Clients include: Billabong, Crate & Barrel, Haagen Dazs, Hurley, LAQA&Co., Pacsun, Scott, Sims, Stussy, and West Elm.
