Projects:

"Totems" (2012- present)

- drawing/ acrylic, and layered glass series 

I am captivated by the transitory essence and underlying symmetry of the natural world.  My work in this series is conceptualized through a reflection on those themes, and then composed using contrasting elements, mediums, motifs, and symbolism.  Each piece is made to stand fully on it’s own as an emblem (or totem), representing a specific idea or sentiment, but through their interplay, they work to evoke a broader sense of interconnectedness, harmony, and the natural cycle of both material and internal transformation.
