Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Collage, Household, Transfers on Wood.

"White Monkey" (2018)
acrylic, collage and transfers on wood, 24x24 inches.

Inspired by Elvis's man cave / TV den. I created this piece as a milestone to a memory of visiting Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. A special place. On my 3rd or 4th visit, I had an epiphany, and became a bigger Elvis fan that day. Graceland and Elvis's legacy to this day serves as a shining symbol of the American Dream.



What you see is what you get. I take great care to get clear and color-correct photographs of my work, but it always looks better in person. Please see additional images for detail shots, art in context, etc. Dimensions reflect the size of the art itself.

All of my smaller paintings on wood include a frame (custom or artist-made) and ready to hang, unless requested otherwise. Some works on canvas include a frame, but most of them do not require it - usually I will continue the painting around the edges. If you have questions or concerns about framing, please ask me for more options. I’m more than happy to accommodate.

All of my work is made with archival quality techniques and materials, and each gets a nice coat of varnish when they’re finished (usually matte). My smaller paintings are on 1/2” birch or oak hardwood boards, and gallery-wrapped canvases for larger work. Everything is made for permanence, so you can expect it to last forever.

I do not provide artist statements for work, because I feel the work and its title is enough to start the conversation with viewers. In my work, the viewer plays a role in finishing the art, giving it life, visibility and intellectual value. However, many of my pieces do have a story, a symbolism or reference. If you’re interesting in learning more about a particular work, please contact me directly or include a note in your offer.

Thank you for your interest!
