My art explores and expresses a story of grace I have loved since first grade. The hope beats strongest in our hopeless and disappointing places. The beauty shines brightest when our beautiful things fade and vanish. The goodness breaks through the ugliness and brokenness of our stories.
Its happily ever after rings truest in our grief.
Vintage ephemera and nature's flawed, small, and broken are my metaphor of that story of grace. They are my subject matter in my representational work and are inspiration in the abstracts. Weathered and aged, circumstances deepen character . A fresh story of beauty, hope and goodness comes from what has become passé, superfluous, or insignificant.
