FAUX VINTAGE MAPS
The following pieces are the product of a unique technique, initially a serendipitous result of an experiment, but then deliberately developed by the artist over several years to create original, faux effects.
Here, it is used to produce an aged, eroded finish to a group of images sourced from ancient maps. The finished works were applied like wallpaper to enhance the niche walls of an Italian restaurant in the prestigious Samoset Resort in Rockport, ME.
This same process may be applied to any image where a weathered look is desired.
The possibilities are endless.

DESIGNATED WALL, BEFORE…
Another series of faux effect pieces designed to imitate worn, cracked, ancient tiles. The size range is typically between 4″ x 4″ and 12″ x 12″. These involve a medieval hunting theme developed for an open, manor-style kitchen, but the image possibilities are many and varied.
