“Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.” ― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray Though this painting, Dawn, was not inspired by the Oscar Wilde quote above, it does seem quite fitting! These beautiful Stickermule 2.5” vinyl stickers are incredibly durable as well as beautiful! Put them on your water bottle or your car and watch how long they last!

Forbidden Fruit : Acrylic, glow beads, glitter, phosphorescent paint, and pouring medium on panel : 14” x 14” : 2022 : Prints : Studio Images This painting started with the glow beads. I was curios how they would look and whether or not they would still glow under all the layers of pouring medium and paint. At first I thought they could represent glowing bugs and I would have the little Flying Fox/Bat eating them, but then I decided they also looked like berries. It was a challenge to get the berries to feel full and lit from behind, but a fun one to tackle. The moon and surrounding clouds ar ..read more

Consultation : Acrylic, glitter and pouring medium on panel : 8”x12” : 2021 : Prints : Available I knew I wanted to make a opossum painting, but didn’t know the narrative. After numerous sketches, I created this inquisitive little fellow holding onto a fasciated flower. The Broad X Cicadas had just emerged, so I decided to add one to the painting. Having not been around in 17 years, the cicada had a lot of questions! Digital sketch created in Procreate on iPad. Blocking in color over transfered image. Bringing in lighter colors. Starting to add details. Building up fur. Detail of finish ..read more

Acrylic, glitter and pouring medium on panel : 12” x 16” : 2022 : Prints This painting was part of a commissioned pair destined for Florida. The patrons wanted one panel to be a flamingo and the other a sea turtle, but beyond that they gave me creative freedom. With this piece, I started it as a cute portrait, but quickly decided that it needed more of a narrative element, so I added the little Skink lizard courting her with a flower. Creating background layers Image transferred and color blocked Added foreground plant Detailing feathers Adding glaze to hibiscus flower. Someone is smitt ..read more

Acrylic, washi, glitter, hair tinsel and pouring medium on panel : 8” x 12” : 2022 : Prints This painting is about the struggle I constantly feel between whether I am working or playing, because the line is very fine! The piece started with this experimental grid of washi tape, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with the panel beyond that point. I had created the playful dog sketch with another panel background in mind, but then I thought the grid panel should have a character wearing a plaid sweater to play off the background and the two ideas came together. Creating the sweater was a bit ..read more

A Cabinet of Curiosities includes objects belonging to natural history (sometimes faked/fantasy), geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art (including cabinet paintings), and antiquities. When we took over the space from Eudora Brewing Company back in 2019, we knew the place would have a completely different vibe in our hands. One of the immediate changes was to make the bathrooms gender neutral. This was not motivated by any idealism, but rather to m ..read more
