Two planets collide at the heart of a Binary star system, carefully described across canvas in rich, acrylic tones. A liquefied puddle of silver is heated under an oxygen-acetalyne flame before a centrifuge engages to throw the molten metal into the cavity of a plaster mold. A dimly lit setup features two paintings being worked simultaneously by a dancing, intently focused painter with atmospheric, psychedelic music played live in the background. Under careful guidance, a student has their first victorious moments, completing a difficult project soldering precious metal designs together into a beautifully constructed piece of wearable art. My aim is to create not just meaningful art, but meaningful and educational experiences. My ultimate goals are to be independent in what I create and free to create works that are not limited by their sale-ability, to create a broad spectrum of works and floating freely between media and genre, to create in an environmentally sustainable way and to teach and inspire others. All of that is possible with Patreon and your help.

Welcome, lover of creation! I'm Trevor and I'm a multidisciplinary artist in Oakland, California. I am creating paintings, illustrations, metal art and jewelry which I hope you will love! I love to live paint and share process, creative input and discovery with people, as well as teach others. As a metalsmith I teach classes on lost wax casting, precious metal clay and jewelry fabrication and get a kick out of playing with fire. If you'd like to support my passions as a patron, I'd love to share things that my social media followers only rarely get peeks at: Process videos, time lapses of paintings and jewelry projects, and little lessons! With your support I can afford to continue painting and illustrating, as well as purchase more materials to expand my metal fabrication studio and spend more time making beautiful, meaningful art, and of course, send you some of that art as my thanks to you!
