🖼️ AVAILABLE at Frederick Homes & Co Gallery, Seattle, WA.

 I celebrate the subtleties of identity by creating visual biographies, combining abstraction and realism with a focus on metaphor and symbolism.  The photographic elements in my work are a fusion of reclaimed and reimagined orphaned, vintage photographs and my digital photographs. The portraits are a fusion many subtle layers of pigmented beeswax monotypes, photos, drawings and antique ephemera to form an amalgam of a biographical detail.

🌴—Opening tonight, June 27, 2024, at 5 PM at Lichtundfire Gallery in NYC!

Let me share the story behind this painting ‘The Moment She Realized It Was True’, from my series ‘Why They Left Sumners Place.’

I develop series of paintings by creating imagined fellowships, geographic locations, or cultural bonds. This is my narrative statement for the series, ‘Why They Left Sumners Place’
 
‘After the sudden and unexpected incident, a few residents of Sumners Place began to leave. It was obvious to everyone that life in this small town could not continue in this way. Some residents had to stay and some had to go. This series of paintings tells the story of what happened and why they left.’

🎨✨ EXCITING NEWS! I am thrilled to announce that I will be exhibiting at the Attleboro Arts Museum, Attleboro, Massachusetts in ‘Morning Noon Night’. On view June 14th – July 12th.
 
I will be exhibiting, ‘First Quarter Moon Garden’ from my series ‘Moon Phase Gardening’.
The ancient practice of moon phase gardening is rooted in the belief that lunar cycles influence plant growth. This series of paintings serves as a reminder of our connection to nature, guiding us to observe and harmonize with the rhythms of the natural world. The Moon Phase Gardening imagery captures the essence of the gardener's journey through meticulous charting and mapping during planting days. Integrating a blend of photographs, abstract drawings, solar plate etchings, and antique ephemera, the image unfolds in delicate layers of pigmented beeswax on Kozo and a wood panel substrate."
