Gift: Original artwork titled "Papa Loves Mambo"
Shop: Velocity Art & Design
Designer: Matte Stephens
City: Seattle, WA

Description: Matte is 36 years old, lives in Birmingham, Alabama and is one of Velocity's newest and most exciting artists. His inspiration? 1940's and 1950's jazz, modern design, and old movies. Right now birds are a main interest of Matte's as he has owls that live in his back yard and he visits rehabilitated owls and other birds at a local nature preserve. Matte - and this piece - is one of a kind (8"x12", gouache on canvas).
