The Tear-n Tan Files are stories about art, fashion, music, and travel.  I’ve been capturing images since a child and after earning photography degrees at both Pasadena City College and the School of Visual Arts I began my career in the photo industry.

This website is now showcasing the art I create, traditionally and digitally.  I work with oil, acrylic, pen, ink, graphite, and on the iPad Pro.

My intent for this blog is to post quality content that is meaningful to my readers.  I hope to share with you information that you will either enjoy or find useful.

I am available for commissions.  If you are interested in a digital or painted portrait or an animation/motion graphics project please feel free to contact me at:


Thank you and have a lovely day!

  1. Hi, I found your blog through a search for a vintage 1960’s Laurence Kazan sequined dress. I found it at a local thrift store in northern Michigan. It has a tag that says Laurence…the rest is torn off. I was searching on the web and saw the picture you posted from the NYC Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show. Here is the link:
    As soon as I saw this picture I knew it was designed by the same person. It is the same type dress with many colors of sequins. There is a letter R and a guitar on the dress completely made out of sequins.
    Your picture is the only thing I can find on the web that I know absolutely was the same designer. I would love to find more info on this dress and designer. I can send pictures. If you can help me or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks, Terry

      1. Thanks for responding. I don’t know much about vintage clothing but knew I had to find out about this dress. Thanks again, Terry
