Most of the frames are recycled varnished or shellacked boards, showing about 1/4" around the image and having a depth of about 1 1/2". Drums are generally acrylic on deerhide, sprayed with matte varnish to allow them to be played without damaging the paint too much.
Pricing: In general, my pieces are about $1.55 per square inch, rounded to the nearest $25. I prefer cash but am sometimes open to trades. I will pay WA State tax and commission to the gallery, you pay shipping.
I have a recurring show at Naked City Brew Pub in Seattle at the beginning of fall. This year I'll also have a summer show at their Camano Island location.
Artist Statement: Interleaving
I was born in Hollywood a long time ago. I remember jacaranda trees and wild parrots; the thick smell of eucalyptus and jasmine; torrential rains and choking smog; palms and carob trees crammed with songbirds. The Northwest has different constellations, a different smell and texture. Almost thirty years off the grid placed me squarely in the dirt and water, with the patterns and relationships to be found here. My paintings arise from that messy, fecund interleaving.
