Sea Change, mixed media, 18×24″, 2010. This combination of painting, collage, and drawing came about as a result of a weird dream I had where this woman was sailing away on a Viking ship. I added in surreal details to add to the dream-like idea. It recently found a new home, in a friend’s newContinue reading “Sea Change”
Garbage Landscape, 12 x 16″, mixed media, 2019. Pretty self-explanatory image. The clouds are tissue paper with paint thickly applied. The ground is corrugated cardboard with the top layer peeled off, and painted.

Sharpie, watercolor, collage. 2018.

Just coming out of two years of work on my master’s degree has left me with scarcely any freeContinue reading “Postcard Project Day 1”
