I started drawing as a high school student in efforts to express emotions I had no idea how to speak. I had never taken drawing seriously before that and certainly didn't expect to find a passion that would generate attention and captivate my audiences. I continued drawing and finding my inspiration through photography from other talented artists.

The more I explored with my pencil, I found hands, and human emotion were the most engaging of subjects and I enjoyed the difficulty and detail that accompanied those pieces. 

As my style evolves, I find my love for sports impacting many of my new projects and my medium being a combination of many tools. I love working on wood as the grain adds an effortless layer of beauty that doesn't overpower the image, but rather compliments. 

I do portraits for hire, and am happy to work with you to create the perfect personal gift for you or someone you love. I will work hard to ensure that the finished product is something that you will treasure for a long time to come.

I have personally had the privilege of getting to know Emily through having her in a class I was teaching at a local high school. Not only is she a great artist, but she is also an incredible young lady who shares an unconditional love for her fellow human beings. Her talent and creative expression truly reveal themselves through her use of mediums and color. Check her out on her Instagram.

Based on the premise that art is meant to be shared and experienced, the ArtMob was founded in 2012 with the goal of being a gathering place for artists and art admirers. More than merely a place to look at art (though there is certainly value in that), theArtMob seeks to offer opportunities to learn and interact with artists and discuss process, techniques, materials, and ideas.

DENNIS BREDOW

Los Angeles native Dennis Bredow examines and celebrates the tireless optimism of mid-twentieth century America in his retro-modern artwork. Using acrylic, serigraphy, and found object assemblage, he creates smart, streamlined pieces which bear the hallmarks of 1950's craftsmanship and graphic design -- offering a present-day revival of the exuberant ideals of a bygone era.

Bredow abandons traditional canvas supports in favor of solid birch panels, which allow for heavy distressing of the paint as well as the application of vintage advertisements, hardware, and other found materials. The finely crafted panels instill the paintings with a sturdy sense of permanence, while the application of multiple layers of distressed paint imparts to each piece a unique narrative of process and history.

Bredow secured his first advertising agency internship at the age of 15. After studying illustration and graphic design at California State University Fullerton, he transitioned to full-time advertising work. He spent nearly two decades in the advertising and film industries before turning his attention to his own work.

Bredow currently lives and paints in Los Angeles, CA.
