Thread and black acrylic paint on canvas. I researched “human heart” so many times for this piece, I feel like Google has placed me on some sort of “watch this one carefully” list. Currently on loan to the Rockrimmon Library in Colorado Springs.

Broderick Pear
Broderick Pear

Nu pastel and thread on canvas

I was taught how to use nu pastel by Professor
Broderick. He is a great professor, and his
signature pieces were usually depictions of pears.
When I made this piece, I could only think of him.
Thank you, Mr. Broderick.

Currently available for sale in the hallway gallery at Curves in Woodland Park, Co.

I Can't Reach You
I Can't Reach You

I began studying psychology not only because I find the human mind fascinating, but also because I wanted to help people. Working in a mental health clinic, however, taught me that you can't fix everyone. This picture depicts a figure on the left who is at a high point in their life. They see another figure on a dark and jagged peak, and try to reach out to them with words of comfort. By the time the words reach the other figure, however, they seem as jagged and cold as the peak they sit upon.

Not available for sale.

Trilobyte
Trilobyte

Metallic thread on painted canvas. Trilobytes were amazing creatures. These many legged, many ribbed creatures are considered one of the more successful species that have inhabited the earth. I tried to catch the eerie beauty of a trilobyte fossil in this piece.

Currently available for sale in the hallway gallery at Curves in Woodland Park, Co.

Sunlight on a Tulip
Sunlight on a Tulip

Thread on Canvas. This one I just made for fun. I took a literal approach to the tulip and a subjective approach to the sunlight.

Currently available for sale in the hallway gallery at Curves in Woodland Park, Co.

Crinoids
Crinoids

Watercolor, raw pigment, and metallic thread on canvas.

This piece was inspired by a fossilized group of crinoids displayed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Though these look like some kind of underwater flower (hence their other moniker, "Sea Lilies"), they are actually animals. Crinoids can be found in stalks like these, but they can also become free floating "Feather Stars" .

This piece is quite large; 4 feet by 3 feet .

Currently part of an art show at the Commonwheel in Manitou Springs, but will be available for sale after Nov. 10th (unless sold at show). Priced down due to slight damage: $800
