Bronze pigment floating on a translucent palimpsest of true indigo pigments ground with a glass muller to obtain the richest possible colors. This is a must-see in person to appreciate the layers that are mostly imperceptible to the camera.
As a follow up to my emotional meltdown related to the difficulties and current unrest, a dialogue has started. One that needed to happen a very long time ago. But within our rewritten palimpsest we are forming strong bonds. Never before have we been so openly challenged to verbalize what we know to be good and right. This has been my path.

Cultural Optimism through Communication
Pure indigo dye with and acrylic medium and acrylic paints on gallery wrap canvas with white wood frame.
Drawing upon the influences of everything and nothing, this piece of aesthetic art exists for the sake of its beauty alone in spite of an obvious nod to the didactic doctrines. And yet it is forming a dialogue with the viewer. There's communication going on. Can we hear it? Do we seek to understand meaning?
Acrylic on canvas with stainless steel and bronze pigments.
Reminiscent of ornate 19th century wallpapers, this new take on romanticism evokes a sense of decorative ornamentation authorized by the new feminist art movement.

Silver Branches in Fog
My aim is to evoke a sense of connection with the color combinations of cool eucalyptus arms against a beachy marine layer fog. The marks are obtained through a layering and working quickly into wet impasto before finishing with a combination of greens, blues and yellows to create a sense of leaves in a mosaic style. For me this was all about the immediacy and energy from the rapid mark-making.
