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.

"... Sometimes I find myself wishing I was a bird. An ingrained systematic purpose of life. No too-many-choices. I gaze into my parents yard, grateful for the innate knowledge of what 'family' means, in its odd and imperfect ebb and flow. That achey craving that sits in the gut, the one that teaches love unconditional. It is Home." Graphite, colored pencil, gold leaf, wax pencil, acrylic, clippings from 1917 issue of The Household pub and 1949 issue of American Rifleman on wood, 24"x36" SOLD
