recent WORK / exhibits



As artists we are constantly changing and transitioning, experimenting with new techniques and ideas, and discovering new ways to use color and medium.  

In this new body of work I am investigating the area that falls in between abstraction and realism. Exploring the color palettes and mark making from my abstract and applying them to animals and urban subject matter.
