Gone 2 Soon is a series depicting artists, musicians, actors, athletes, and talented human beings who died before their time. These unique individuals left their mark on the world, and especially me. Each image is painted with acrylic paint on stretched canvas (each painting is protected by varnish).
Gone 2 Soon is a series dedicated to the life of my older sister, Rachel. Rachel passed away in 2015, one month before turning 36 years old from complications due to Crohn's Disease. The portraits I create are honoring my sister. Without her I would have never known the joys of listening to Nirvana at the age of 8, or cruising around town blasting Notorious B.I.G., or understanding the importance of expressing oneself.
This series is defined by its use of clean lines, shapes, and expressions, along with a unique two-dimensional point-of-view through the use of color separation.
