Skin Narratives

Skin Narratives is a series of paintings about metaphorical skin and its layers of history, time, scars, and familiar landmarks that we acquire and lose as selves in a body in relation to other bodies and the surface of the planet. What has been erased or forgotten resurfaces in uncanny signs and visions that seem familiar yet not quite recognizable.

Golden Age Tapestries

Collage tapestries weave together bits and pieces of the detritus of our golden age of materialism and its pleasant, but wasteful rituals of consumption. Like banners of Medieval heraldry, they are rich in symbolism and story. The literature of magical realism and romanticism is a significant influence.
