Dye sublimation print on custom cut aluminum panel. Rejection is part of life for an artist and I get used to hearing no more often than yes. Still it can be hard when you put work out into the world and it is rejected, or worse ignored. Confidence can be shaken and it's easy for impostor syndrome to take hold. Is my work any good? Am I going to be judged and found out? Is the Emperor wearing any clothes? I made this piece during one of those times when I was doing a lot of self questioning. It was like the sun peeking out through a chink in the clouds. A small affirmation that put me back in touch with my creative self. …… Please note that each aluminum print is unique (I only make one) and made to order. Please allow 4-5 weeks for delivery. 1/16" gauge aluminum panel mounted on a 3/4" aluminum frame. The print is also backed with 1/4" Sintra board (rigid PVC) for stability, which is inset 1 1/2" from the edge of the print. Dye Sublimation printing (also known as metal print) is a process of infusing dyes into a sheet of pre-treated aluminum via heat transfer. The process once complete, is permanent and archival up to 65+ years, as tested by Wilhelm imaging research.

As an artist I have always been acutely sensitive to my environment and physical space. My work is a personal response to and exploration of the forms, spaces, light and color that surround me every day. This was true growing up in the industrial north of England, and now in my adopted home of Los Angeles. I am fascinated by the power of color. How it can reach deep into the unconscious to affect emotions, transport us to another time or place, disrupt perceptions and change minds. My work is intended as a portal, a way to tap into the trans formative power of art through color.More About Artist
