When I take commissions, I apply my interests to the work, with the intended audience deeply in mind. For example, the imagery of Roses and Ravens for Duncan Aviation was crafted using my research of Spanish Colonial flora and fauna painting. In the case of Solstice, I also utilized that same research to create a work of art that elicited an emotional experience on a luxury cruise ship, bringing an illusion of being on land onto a cruise ship to provide passengers with a momentary relief from being on the water for weeks at a time.
