A one-of-a-kind work is the best way to bring a space to life. My artwork is an opportunity for people to take some positive energy home with them.

Artist info

These paintings were made during the COVID 19 lockdown summer at the height of the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement. People were taking to the streets, windows were being plywood over, and the energy of nature, protest, and politics were palpable. My studio time focused on concepts of US vs. THEM and how the powerful beauty of nature keeps moving forward no matter what. Nature shares energy allowing a natural flow to move from one thing to another. We seem to fight this natural flow of energy at every turn. We fight, we choose sides, and we battle with each other.
