Speed Painting

While technically the examples above and below are all examples of speed paintings in that they were all completed in a noted amount of time, the above examples referenced multiple photos to create different elements in the composition, where the below examples are basically just timed paintings recreating a single reference photo.

Image Manipulations

(aka... Lady Gaga fan art... like the rest of my work...)

These composites were created for fun and as student work throughout 2010–2013. The original photo or a gif detailing the piece's process accompanies each composition below.


Bubble Dreams
January 2012. Inspired by lyrics in Lady Gaga's "Speechless."

Along with many other fans' creative works, this piece was chosen to be featured in a documentary about Lady Gaga and her fans during the 2013 legs of her "Born This Way Ball" world tour. Plans were scrapped following Gaga's hip injury and subsequent cancellation of the tour's remaining shows.

The Fame Monster
October 2010. Inspired by Lady Gaga's "The Fame Monster," and created as an assignment for an Image Manipulation class at the Art Institute of California in San Francisco.

I was also sick of having to catch the bus for the eighth consecutive year in my academic career, so in her right hand, she is destroying a Muni from my then-daily commute.


A Hybrid
December 2013. Inspired by lyrics in Lady Gaga's "ARTPOP."
