The first part of my process begins with an image.
Here is a look into my most recent macro abstract rust series on metal. This image reveals a stunning contrast between nature and contemporary decay.
On its own this image is intriguing and intricate, but elevating things a bit further, I will hand-make a sleek contrasting frame for this piece.

After I find the perfect image, it needs the perfect frame.
Using raw, industrial steel found in junk piles and steel yards, I upcycle this metal by hand-cutting and welding pieces together creating the ideal frame size. Next, the fun begins.
Depending on what I feel will most compliment my image, I will either polish, rust, distress or patina the frame, completing its look. No two frames are alike.

When the backing is completed, it's time to mount the stunning image to the perfect frame.
On the back of the piece, I use an interlocking cleat mount system for easy hanging on the wall.
The finished piece is then signed by me and assigned a limited edition number. All that's left is finding the perfect home.
