Welcome to my professional Art Portfolio. Here I present some of my favorite art pieces. Look through my work, as I attempt to become proficient in the art of realism utilizing oil, and acrylic mediums. Focusing on subjects from my community, including people and pet portraits. See my style through these various subjects, and get in touch for more information.
In this section, I would like to present a three dimensional project, where I have incorporated paint and jewelry smithing.
DOUBLE LOVER'S EYE BROOCH
Oil paint on metal jewelry
I created this piece through jewelry smithing and cold connections.
This brooch was based off victorian era jewelry, with the idea of keeping a piece of someone you love, near you. By only having one eye painted, the identity of the lover is usually kept a secret.
In my piece, I created a double lover's eye, with a moving rivet. When closed, only a single eye can be seen, but you can actually open it up, to reveal a second eye. The identity of the lover becomes a little more revealed with the addition of the second eye.
