Recent Solo Exhibitions

MY FATHER ALWAYS TOLD THE MOST OUTLANDISH TALES. WE NEVER KNEW WHETHER HE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH OR NOT.....USUALLY NOT.

REAL LIFE IS COLORFUL ENOUGH FOR ME.

I USE ALLEGORICAL CHARACTERS TO TELL REAL STORIES OF LOVE, LIFE AND SOBRIETY.

SOMETIMES MINE, SOMETIMES YOURS.

 

ROOTING MY NARRATIVES IN TRADITIONAL, TACTILE CRAFT MEDIUMS INCLUDING WOOD , fabric AND DRIED FLOWERS to create bas-reliefs, quilts and installations HAS ALLOWED ME TO develop A SIMPLER MORE ACCESSIBLE LANGUAGE IN MY WORK INSPIRED BY THE SIMPLICITY AND DIRECTNESS OF FOLK ART AND THE BEAUTIFUL STORYTELLING OF JAPANESE WOODCUT PRINTs.
