Tacky Treasures

A household collection of salt and pepper shakers and other fun figurines are the models for this series of works. These traditionally realistic paintings of unconventional subject were greatly influenced by botanical illustration and the Index of American Design. There are three goals common to each work in the series: create a beautiful composition, attain a high degree of realism, and give the objects life and personality.
