Upcoming exhibition:

My Work
I am inspired and influenced by visual opposites: the clean lines of mid-century design and rough tribal objects, Art Deco elements and raw and primitive gestural marks. Also in the mix is an attraction to two-dimensional icons and occult symbols, rustic chapels, and altars. In process, I am also conducting deep investigations into color and exploring its dynamic power to affect the emotions and the role it plays in constructing narrative.

Themes in my work include connections below the surface, bridging seemingly impossible parts of our lives, mending our brokenness, confronting uncertainty, and the ways in which we visit the abyss and emerge from it with treasures.

A final work may resemble a long built-upon place of worship or gathering, a strange alchemical device, an abstract chapel, a prayer rug, or a crude sailing vessel--all of which share the common end-goal of transmutation.
