Paintings will arrive signed and dated. I have a unique tradition in that I don't sign my paintings until the very last minute possible.

The "So Here We Are" Collection is about surviving, then thriving. This is a celebration of moving through fear and chaos to discover joy in a new life, a new time. From mid March to late July this collection of watercolor and gouache paintings came to life. As the months passed darker and dramatic colors were replaced with transparent brights. As my heart found peace amid chaos, intensity gave way to lightness. Paintings were purposely not finished in any one given month or feeling. So each is the result of layering not only paint, but time and feelings.
I most often work on a small scale but dive deeply with layer after layer of paint. Details are added with the tiniest of brushes to trick and train the eye to see something new at every glance. My work is brazen in color, free from pretense but riddled with seemingly unending texture and linear detail. Best when viewed up close and curious when seen from a distance.

Fuchsia. Oh blessed Fuchsia, I wish you were with us all year long. It's okay to wish for beauty we don't have in front of us right at the moment. It's okay to hope. Here, Fuchsias represent hope...hope for times more light, days less heavy and hope for words bubbling up in peace.
