My artwork is created in series and grouped into collections. Each collection contains several works.
The imagery is optimistic and celebrates beauty while revealing a glimpse into a new world. I often use recurring themes of water, light and reflection to capture that instant of sensation when these elements slide into each other. I find the shimmering images and ephemeral changes of light to be a powerful reminder of the fleeting nature of our visions.
Early images were based on music that speaks to my sensibilities and the titles were inspired by the poetic lyrics. I enjoyed creating a sensation of being able to “hear” an image. As time went on, my recent collections evolved, and the narrative is now driven by my own original prose.
YOU CAN EXPLORE THE WORKS IN EACH COLLECTION AND READ MORE ABOUT THE SERIES BELOW.
SEEK THE LIGHT
This series delves into the ethereal realms where the boundaries between heaven and earth seem to diminish. In this space, there exists a momentary pause, where we can experience the elusive and altered light that unfolds, allowing worlds to converge. We are invited to explore the mystical and transcendental spaces where imagination and existence coalesce.
THE BECOMING OF KNOWING
In this collection, I’ve paired sacred geometry as it manifests in the natural world with the symbols that represent the energy patterns that create and unify all things.
BE AS THE WATER
Vestige refers to something that is no longer present but its effects remain. The most enduring evidence in existence is presence of water. The unrelenting flow has been felt since the beginning and continues to shape the world we live in on every level.
THERE IS ALWAYS MORE TO THE STORY
This series is a reminder that things are not always what they appear on the surface and is there is always another side that remains unknown.
THE SHADOW WE CAST IS DEFINED BY OUR LIGHT
This series also explores individuality as it relates to the larger community and our place in the natural world and how our unique light can affect those around us.
REACHING INTO THE INTERSECTIONS OF MEMORY, REALITY AND PERCEPTIONS.
The Artifacts Collection explores the intersections of memory, reality and perceptions. It’s about fragments and figments. It questions the reliability of our visions and seeks the ghosts on the fringes.
In this series I’ve used an abstracted tree design to create a sort of natural cathedral.
THE POSSIBILTIES ARE ENDLESS
This collection is optimistic and celebrates wonder while creating an encounter that reveals a fresh glimpse into a new world of endless possibilities.
IT’S IN THE SPACE THAT LIES IN-BETWEEN THAT WE FIND WHERE WE BELONG
These images seek the shadowed realities that can not be seen until we reach the apex and look back, revealing the echoes of lifetimes playing across the topography. It’s in the space that lies in-between that we find where we belong.
These pieces are meant to reveal a hidden world and the complexities of adjacent realities.
This special collection is made up of artwork featuring iconic Austin architecture, bridges and surrounding Hill Country natural treasures.
