New Original Collage Artwork

I’ve got some new original artwork for sale in my online shop this weekcheck them out here!

This is a group of collage pieces that I created using collage papers, some of my favorite stamps, acrylic paint, and other mixed media materials that were on hand at the time. I was thinking about layering and making different elements work together when I created these.

Each piece is matted and framed in white and can be hung on the wall or displayed on a tabletop. I’m selling them for $55 each so a nice little deal for these if you are looking for some original artwork for your home, gifts, etc.

Here is a peek at Hope and Lady Liberty

And here is Powerhouse and Message Received

Finally we have Stay Strong and We The People

I love when I get myself a little organized and have some artwork that I can share with you. Sometimes in the chaos of creating, running a website, and juggling all the other stuff that comes with being a working artist, this is hard to pull off. But when it does, you always surprise me with your enthusiasm and excitement, and that really makes me happy :)

So check them out here in my shop while they are in stock, and I hope to be sending one of these out to you soon!

The Lombard – New Painting

“The Lombard” is inspired by my Strolls through the Hood in Jersey City.

It shows a street view of the oldest pawn shop in NJ – H. Schoenberg, founded in 1895. I was thinking about how while this is type of business is a lifeline for folks, it also conjures sad feelings when I pass it and see the things in the window. So many complex stories and circumstances are in plain sight.

My overarching mood however is one of hope, and better times ahead, and hopefully the souls who visited the shop will be able to return once again and claim their instruments and heirloom jewelry as their own.

This original painting was made with spray paint, acrylic paint, gouache, ink, pencil, markers, pastel, and collage on canvas.

“The Lombard” is available in my Shop and would love to find a new home.

Up in the Hills – New Painting

“Up in the Hills” is a new painting inspired by my Strolls through the Hood in Jersey City.

Moore’s Place, a bar and jazz club run by Mrs. Ruth, has been here for over 60 years as part of the neighborhood, and now during the pandemic has become a special, magical space with live jazz music outside every weekend to soothe our souls.

The building itself used to have a different life long before the music arrived – there is still machinery in the basement.

I have yet to uncover the history of this building – one day I will ask Mrs Ruth, but right now I let her hustle and bustle around us lucky happy faces when we are here to listen to the music and see the people of the neighborhood, while eating Mrs Ruth delicious fish fry.

For this painting I used spray paint, acrylic paint, gouache, and markers on canvas. Give Moore’s Place a new home – and purchase it here in my storeedited: So stoked this painting found a new home at home here in Jersey City !!!

Till the Curtain Comes Down – New Painting

“Till the Curtain Comes Down” is another painting on canvas inspired by my Strolls through the Hood in Jersey City . I love this beautiful brick building from 1887.

I used spray paint, acrylic paint, gouache, collage, wax bars, and markers. The house was built by a descendant of one of the oldest Dutch familes of Jersey City, Wilhelm Brinkerhoff. He was a state senator who died in 1931. After his death, the building was a christian mission with a radio station on the roof.

It has a bit of a Rapunzel Tower feel for me as the building is a little bit overgrown by plants and even though someone lives here it seems to be mysterious. I picked up some piano player roll paper and the first thing that happened was I saw the wording “till the curtain comes down” and that my friends is how the title was born ….I mean …it was just meant to be .

Till the Curtain comes down is looking for a new home. You can find it here. The canvas measures 10×10″.

Yas Queen Painting

Here is another painting of the beautiful Queen Anne Mansion I walk by almost every day.

I wonder what the original colors have been back in the days- a lot of those houses have been actually painted in very jarring colors – but at some point house owners toned everything a bit own I guess.

I had fun with this painting on a 8×8 canvas with Acrylic paints, gouache, spray paints and markers.

And you can give it a home if you want – it is available in my store – Check it out :)

Worship – Painting

This painting is inspired by a beautiful wood church in my neighborhood. 

I just recently was inside the church as it also showed some artwork of local artists during the Jersey City Art and Studio tour.

I am not easily taken by church buildings anymore …don’t get me wrong, but as a European I have had my share of stunning and OLD churches- but this one is breathtaking and unique – I had to paint it.

I used Acrylic paints, Markers, charcoal, oil pastels for this painting. I am right now painting a series of paintings inspired by my Strolls through the Hood – and I am having a lot of fun with it.

    I love the challenge of stenciling on a rough and distressed surface. These are beautiful and I’d love to try that technique!
