antique pistols in flight
There is an age-old struggle in finding a balance between the natural world and the human condition. My passion for the romanticized and rugged West, where the male character is often dominant, is counterbalanced the elegance and feminine strength of Mother Nature. In these works, I explore the harmony between the mechanic & organic, the masculine & feminine, the contemporary & historic. I dive into a personal narrative. Each pieces tells its own story. Beneath the graphite and colored pencil drawings are clippings from antique publications such as American Rifleman and The Homemaker Magazine, found in the belongings of my great-grandparents.
