THE END OF SEX JANUARY 2022

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Star Emily Hampshire Leads Rom-Com ‘The End Of Sex’ – Deadline

I was so fortunate to be Prop Assist on this hilarious Rom-Com starring Emily Hampshire and Jonas Chernick. I spent a few of my prep days developing a series of paintings that was used throughout the movie as props and set dec. I was given specific direction as to how the paintings should look and I created a collection for one of the main characters. I also painted a series of seductive and cheeky art that was part of Set for a Sex Club.  The art you see in the following images was provided by me. I am capable in numerous mediums and styles and have 15 years of experience painting and 10 years working in film.
