The Synthwave Series is collection of digital artwork inspired by experiences growing up as a youth in the 1980s. These cultural spaces were free of parental control and rich with creativity and experimentation. 

 

These 9 x 14 artworks rebuild existing spaces in the built environment -using digital photo editting, google maps, and digital photography. All prints are available for sale in acrylic media.
