A Thin Line
Limited Edition Framed Canvas
The Limited Edition Framed Canvas is our Canvas Wraps finished with a black floater frame. These unique frames are so named because the illusion they create is that your artwork is "floating" within the frame instead of being covered by it — perfect for displaying our Canvas Wraps. Each piece is signed and numbered by the artist, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
Canvas Wraps are much like gallery wrapped canvas. Artwork is printed on a canvas material, stretched to fit a custom wooden frame, and attached to the wooden frame. As a result, all hardware used to secure the canvas is hidden and the artwork extends to all sides visible to the viewer. Made from our premium eco-friendly wood, Canvas Wraps create a classical way to preserve and present artwork. A simple French cleat system is provided to securely mount and display a Canvas Wrap. A multitude of durable surface finishes are offered to enhance artwork and provide UV protection and moisture resistance to a piece of artwork.
Artwork is mounted on an acid-free 3/8” thick surface, finished with a beveled edge and given a ¾” deep backing to create a floating effect. The backing is recessed from the edge such that it is not easily seen. A simple French cleat system is provided to securely mount and display a Wall Plaque. The image is 100% protected UV Laminate. The product is rated for 125 years.
Made from our premium eco-friendly wood, a Coaster is a 4 x 4 dimensional wooden card that is a long-lasting way to preserve and present artwork. Art is mounted on an acid-free 3/8” thick surface and finished with a beveled edge. The Coaster is a completely finished product with a coated, black, moisture-resistant finish on the back to ensure art is fully protected and maintains a clean, high-quality appearance from front to back. In addition, there is room to add your personal sentiment to customize your artwork for any occasion. When finished expressing yourself, the Coaster fits into its own mailer, you attach the postage and mail it! Coaster can be used for promotions, coasters, thank you cards, or displayed as table top art pieces by inserting the enclosed dowel.
I have always had a deep affinity to nature and natural forms, from the figure to landforms, flora and fauna, yet always reaching for something deeper, what is universal, what stirs our souls. I welcome your feedback and thank you for visiting.
Dialogues – Portraits and Figurative work
I love to work from the figure and do portraits, because the life of the artist can be a very solitary journey, we don’t often “jam” like musicians. In my figurative work, I work from life, not photos as much as possible, because I see them as conversations with each of the sitters or models, a visual celebrating of that person and it is greatly influenced by their energy and presence, a dialogue between myself and others that happens beyond words
Shadows Upper Haight
a celebration of my love of San Francisco. When I first moved there, I knew one person, so it was a time of reflection and solitude and the point of view from the inside looking out
This series is about the unraveling of what you “know:” to be true, to discover a deeper sense of “knowing”; your own inner truth. The forms are visual metaphors for the tenuous state of being we are, somehow real and yet ephemereal on the most fundamental level.
I love the idea of finding a place between realism and abstraction and this series for me reaches furthestr into this place between of all my work. Water is the heart of this body of work It allows me to build color with layers and compels me to find a balance between control and surrender, the tenuous yet indelible. It also reflects the nature of the subject matter; mostly formed by water. I marvel at how the rocks that we perceive as “hard”, and permanent were formed by what we perceive as “soft” and malleable, a fitting metaphor for the power of gentle yet persistent action, and the wisdom of seeking a balance – a place between.
