 Paint, gold, copper and silver leaf as well as vintage crushed glass and the chemical aging processes of oxidation are used to create unique works that are inspired by the experiences of the millions of individuals who have used the subway to travel the boroughs of New York City.  Old and young, shiny and tattered all share the same environment and never know what they will come across during their next ride on the subway train in NYC.

Throughout my artistic career I have been commissioned to create paintings and sculptures of  families, emperors, landscapes, beloved pets, bull fights and just about everything in-between.  I deeply enjoy bringing the ideas of another person to life in my distinct artistic style.

Learn more about the process of commissioning an original here, or feel free to contact me with any questions or to discuss ideas.

Below are process videos of recently commissioned pieces.  Enjoy!

Spirit of Vietnam

60″x48″

[On View at Pho Linh Restaurant]

 

This painting was created using oils, gold, copper and silver leaf on canvas and features the traditionally symbolic lotus flower, as well as the ao dai, and non la of Vietnamese custom. The country itself  has been personified as a beautifully poised, reserved woman with long flowing lines and a smoldering inner strength that shines through.
