Bloom Juice (Issaquah, WA)

An exhibition of my "Flower Power" series of paintings, ranging in size from 6x6" to 36x48". Flower Power was born from a time of confusion, deep discontent, frustration, grief, and an energy that would not be contained. As 'rage art,' this series transforms the physical processing of anger and powerful outrage into visual, dynamic beauty.

Summer 2017: "Opacities" at artEAST (Issaquah, WA)

A series of rage art paintings exploring layers of emotion and how some of those emotions are more transparent and more open than others. Real, fake, illusion, privilege, competition, sovereignty, speculation, and constant access to commentary and everyone's take on current events are underlying themes in this work. Unlike my previous rage art series, this one unfolded slowly with curiosity and objectivity. 11x14", acrylic on paper, mounted on board.

"Take a Seat for Kids" Fundraiser for Encompass NW

I was one of 6 artists invited to paint a pair of Adirondack chairs for an auction benefitting Encompass NW in North Bend, WA. The chairs were display in front of Art Gallery of Snoqualmie for the month of May. 

I chose to paint the chairs in my Flower Power style using mural paint. The inner edges of the slats are embellished with a light coat of glow-in-the-dark paint as well.

Spring 2017, artEAST Art Center (Issaquah, WA)

"Moving Mountains." This series is about the human time scale and the Earth's time scale, about solid rock and orogenies and forces of change. Just like mountain ranges are created, leveled, and recreated over time, I painted the mountains in this group several times in varying styles. The final results are monochromatic renderings with a modern, neutral background, allowing the focus to be on the essential characteristics of each peak.
