PORTRAIT PROJECT

As a professional artist since 2005, I could not touch “real/tactile” mediums due to being severely allergic to the point of hospitalization. Recently receiving a diagnosis and treatment has given me the ability to use colored pencils or watercolor without incident! The portrait Project was created because It feels like I am starting over – and I want other “real humans” to be a part of that story and healing. Learn more about the project or how to submit below.

THE BIRD BOOK (TITLE TBA)

Thank you for stopping by. Project “Bird Book” (Temp Title) is a book of painted birds with short stories that features the bird type and its scientific name. Each heartfelt story is a tale of the bird’s life and is there to each us something about our feathered friend and ourselves. Each bird is magical and special in its own way and it is my hope that their stories and little lives resonate with you.

COLOR STUDIES

Creativity comes in various forms. As an exhibited artist, my creativity is often tailored to my professional experiences and opportunities such as exhibitions. However, I have found to keep my creativity fresh I must play with new and unique materials and ways to express my emotions, opinions, and life. This project was one of the ways I chose to express myself, my love of color, and the unique things I have adopted over the years.

SILVER ERA TAROT (2010)

The Silver Era Tarot is a fully functional tarot card deck based on the original Rider-Waite-Smith interpretation. The deck is a new-age interpretation of classical ideas expressed with artistic breakthroughs in new bold, groundbreaking ideas as we bring tarot into the 21st Century for older generations to rediscover and expose to a whole new generation of learners and thinkers.

These cards will help one gain valuable insights in all aspects of life on their journey to manifest their destiny and to keep a positive outlook on life through the survival of each day of a beautiful life.

AN EPIDEMIC OF RETROSPECTIVE

An Epidemic of Retrospective is a compilation of writings and artwork collected from individuals sharing their experiences and what they have learned from the very beginning until now on their journey as an artist.

Letter from The Curator
“An Epidemic of Retrospective: Words That Change Us” is an art and writing book project I was honored to curated a few years back, however, it was never completed. The time never seemed quite right. As I sit here today in 2020, with everyone’s life transpiring at a state of flux and uncertainty, this book project beckoned to me for completion. The poignant words crafted from artists to their younger self, their beautifully featured artwork, and the book title which ironically was assigned to the book back in 2015; seemed urgent and relevant. I am overjoyed to share this collection of writings and artwork – even as time has passed since the original incantation of this project, the collection seems timeless.

OBVIOUS REMOTE CHAOS

Life seems unreal and lost to what truth knows. While peering out our window of preference, typically our visions show time passing by with a quick swift force bringing the world’s uncontrolled happenings full-frontal, and yet most don’t realize they are part of this constantly unfolding remarkable show. Participation is chosen, but the greater part of the population stands on the sidelines dreaming or sleeping their show away. Parts of life, people and places eventually go missing, and the feeling of abandonment of life takes over the original idea to participate. With key players now removed, their world gently fades into the shadows, and the window fogs preventing new visions or hopes. Looking back a few years my world was severely misplaced and intentionally out of focus. The fog was so thick that trying to look through the window me brought constant headaches, and any visions I was lucky enough to receive did nothing but rest poorly in my psyche. Sometimes those unforgettable thoughts can bring about some overpowering means to creativity, so I give you this book.
