"All night I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times into
something better."

Days spent:
watching

07/15/2016 - 09/15/2016

I wake and walk taking in bits and pieces over the years. Each morning I discover myself and the world, and forgot them, and discovered them again. 
 

Instance:
assembling time

06/20/2014 - 08/15/2014

The ebb and flow of the ocean tides serve to guide the growth of organic life forms with each instance realizing a moment of grace. Ever expanding, this encaustic mono-print series pulls its inspiration from the sea’s coral reefs.  

Creature:
speak to me

04/18/2014 - 08/15/2014

We whisper to nature, holding the most intimate of conversations. As the creatures reveal themselves, a story unfolds sharing small truths.

Corbicula:
open work

on-going

An evolving collection of suspended sea creatures flaunting texture and color in the light of day. As night descends, their luminous nature reveals itself in a tranquil waltz.
