There is a story and deep meaning behind each piece I do whether it’s about design, spiritual growth, personal growth etc. This commissioned piece was inspired by asking the client what made him the person who he is today. Music is his medicine, in particular, Dave Matthews. This astral projection of Dave is infused with plant and animal medicine specifically tuned to the client with the DMB logo integrated into the branches.

The fourth piece in my Femme Fatale series, is a custom piece designed for a client’s home. I have been fortunate in all of my commissions thus far to be given full creative freedom. If you believe in your vision, others will too. Like all of my pieces, this multi-layered resin is highlighted when light hits it from different angles.

One love, one heart. Let’s get together…let’s spread love, not only for today but everyday, everywhere and to everyone. Love your brotherman, love yourself, let love be your inspiration. Bob Marley has always been a personal inspiration of mine, and this piece allowed me to experiment and expand my portraiture techniques.
