A sense of place.
Bringing the outride in.
An homage to the environment in which they were created.
The paintings in this series were made using: iron-rich Utah dirt, salt from The Great Salt Lake, metallic powders, plaster, repurposed paint, and local newspapers. All works available at 15th Street Gallery
I love creating custom paintings that are in complete harmony with a client's space. These tiny triptychs were made for a gorgeous remodel in one of Salt Lake City's most iconic neighborhoods: The Avenues.
Quite often, I have privy to the space (in all it's beautiful chaos) during the construction/remodel process. I love this! I feel such a huge sense of honor and responsibility to get it right, and contribute my particular hand to a client's home sanctuary.

Upcoming ZOOM Workshops & a few words about adaptation:
One of my favorite painting installations of all time. This rockstar client purchased 6 of my original paintings for their stunning home in Kamas, Utah.
By using loads of texture, sophisticated colors, and "bringing the outside in" with paintings made with locally sourced salt, sand and sawdust, these painting add, not compete with the breathtaking views of the vicinity. Truly, this is a home made a sanctuary.
A huge thanks to Hudson Home Design for making this a reality, and for Kate Osborne Photography for the lovely installation shots.
If you've taken one of my Fearless Abstract Painting workshops, you know it's a lot of information to digest. Quite often there is so much "unlearning" to do because these concepts and techniques are so unorthodox.
With this in mind, I've compiled this quick reference guide to some of my most popular techniques for you to use.
Enjoy! And as always, please feel free to contact me with any questions & suggestions.
