Mini Art Deco Painting
This stunning little piece is inspired by the ornate beauty and hidden detail found in classic Art Deco Architecture. My breathe is always taken away by the hand carvings and intricate detail. I find immense inspiration from these buildings. Sometimes it’s just a iron door, others a ceiling on an old theatre from the 1920’s. Beauty can truly be found in everything, if you look hard enough.
Each painting consists of multiple layers, to create a truly original piece of art. I start by sketches, then gesso. I then begin layering down my acrylic metallic paints, and just a splash of color. Next come the metal leafing, which I think adds a unique aspect of depth. Followed by shading and textured. Finished with a little bit of grunging, and a coat of varnish.
Larger sizes can be made upon request, as well as prints.
Recreations may have slight variations.
Please contact me with any questions, or requests. I would love to help you.

Bex is a self taught artist, based out of fabulous Las Vegas. She has always had a love of all of the arts. The painting journey began at age 16, when she received her first painting set. She immediately began playing with blending techniques and color concepts. The original ideas can still be seen in her work today.
A few years back while working on a Greek Comedy for the Las Vegas Fringed Festival. Bex was set to task to put a new twist on the traditional Greek column. The signature sinewy design was born. As the final scene was set in hell, I had the vision of the columns melting. They ended up taking on a more muscular appearance.
Bexs' unique Sinewy style can be described as fluid and natural, embodying chaos, nature, and natural form. It’s eye catching and hypnotic. It invokes feeling and emotion .Each piece has its own story to tell, and each person sees a different story.
Bex is also known for her art deco pieces. She has always loved architecture, especially building made in the art deco era. There are always such beautiful hidden gems to be found around every corner. She loves to extract that beauty, and recreate it in her own vision.
Both styles are combined with contrasting elements, such as leafing, vortexes, and grid. Which make the bold jewel tones pop even more. Both collections, while completely different in style. Completely express both sides of Bex's personality. Dark and structured/Bright and chaotic. Yet, there’s a beauty to the structure, and a fluid peace to the chaos.
Her work can be found in galleries all around the Las Vegas Valley, and has been sold globally.
