Natural Habitat
Spoke Art Gallery NYC 2018

This exhibit referenced memories of my past as well as stories of adventures that I’ve taken along the way. My grandmother was an embroiderer and quilt maker, and instilled a deep appreciation for intricate detail. This influence is readily apparent in recent work with ink drawings using meticulous line work to create complex cage like animals and structures. Stylized environments appear to be from an alternate realm full of surreal adventures featuring unicorns, aliens and elaborate fashion.
