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.

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds work together, using spools of thread to tie up and haul off the derringer. There is power in their numbers. The hummingbird is the only type of bird that relies solely on its own strength to hover in the air. The “dynamic performance of hummingbird wings is ‘remarkably similar’ to that of an advanced micro helicopter rotor. But the wings are up to 27% more efficient."  Graphite, colored pencil, clippings from 1949 American Rifleman, acrylic on panel, 16"x20" SOLD
