Works in Process

Work in process is always more fun, I think. Since I don't have any major shows coming soon, I am working at whatever pace I feel that day. Here are the things that are slowly coming to fruition. Email me if you have any questions about a work or inquiries about purchasing.

THE MESSAGES WE SEND

All cultural backgrounds share one thing in common... the struggles of teaching the next generation how to navigate the

ever-changing world.

In this series bees are the carriers of knowledge, found in the text & the 

signage is recognizable enough to allow the viewer to bring their own nostalgia to the work.

Library Card

Library System

The aging library system is reminiscent of the aging ideals being passed down to our younger generations. The tinge of time on the pages reminds us to take a second look at what our life lessons are really teaching before handing them down.

Mary's

Currently under reconstruction.

Mary is a dear friend and fellow artist. She commissioned this piece after seeing a previous work, hanging in my own home. In its making, the work has taken on a different personality than that I set out to design. It is this reason that I am parting with this original and going back to the drawing board for Mary's commission.

This piece began as an ode to small, hidden, parts of our friendship and became an experiment of sorts in new ways of bringing recycled and found materials together.

Mixed-Media: vintage McCall's pattern paper, vintage stamp envelopes, vintage wallpaper, found paper, canvas cutouts, acrylic paint, acrylic marker, pen & ink, on canvas. The work is free-hanging, or lacking final touches. Any interested collector need only express their desired final placement to discuss shipping and final hanging requirements.
