"The Watchman" It's a mystery to even me what he's watching for, but he is intent and aware and ready.

"Reinfirst" (2015). Religion has always been tricky for me.  I am drawn to the historical pervasiveness of ritual and often feel a connection to the trappings, but when I get right down in the dregs of any faith it falls short and my need for logic and science and proof always win out.  This makes me sad sometimes, but not nearly as sad as when I read about folks hurting themselves or others for their faith.  Meet Reinfirst, inspired by the ultimate religious torture of death by fasting.

"Where I Was Not Welcome" (2016) Hearkening back to the beautiful etchings of my old storybooks this piece took on a story of its own.  I've been contemplating a children's book and so the notion of narrative in my work is becoming more and more important.  I am hoping to create environments that are exciting and fascinating, but also intimidating in very subtle ways.  The quote at the bottom reads "Fixing its eye upon me, the thing in the boat began to scream." #art #drawing #penandink

"Saul" - Beautiful things often have a 'keeper', a guardian or a warden, someone to keep the ugly out and the beautiful in. What a remarkable and lonely job

"Empathy" (2015) Normally I work on one piece from start to finish.  Delayed by art shows and illustration assignments this one took me around two months.  Each time I came back to it I couldn't tell what was going on.  I'm still not sure if she's getting ready to sneeze or laugh or cry.  I have to wonder if the attempt to capture a moment before action actually resulted in a piece that is more reflective of the viewer than the artist's intention.  Drawing is 11in x 14in
