Fine Art

Veneer

11''x17'' April 2019 ink, acrylic, pencil, charcoal on Bristol board. The expectations of wearing a pretty face and being silent while the rage and pain well up to eventually claw out. leaving us hollow. This is the first piece of a series that touches on the darker emotions we experience and was the first time I limited myself to Black & Grey. for the last two years I was working with a lot of color. It was a great back to basics for me.

Elder

11''x14'' April 2019 ink, acrylic, pencil, charcoal on Bristol board. Another piece to the Black & Grey series. This piece is a representation on the roll we play within the natural world. how we bring destruction and continue to cause the extinction of other creatures.

Marred

11''x17'' April 2019 ink, acrylic, pencil, charcoal on Bristol board. Black & Grey series, this piece expresses the wounds and scars we carry through life. These burdens can leave us feeling isolated and desolate.

Forlorn

11''x17'' April 2019 ink, acrylic, pencil, charcoal on Bristol board. Black & grey series, this piece speaks to our insecurities. The crippling loneliness for when we feel different. unloved & monstrous.

Inveigle

11''x17'' April 2019 ink, acrylic, pencil, charcoal on Bristol board. Black & Grey series, hunter or game. the world is full of traps.

Offering

11''x17'' April 2019 ink, acrylic, pencil, charcoal on Bristol board. Black & grey series. Like a lamb led to slaughter, this piece acknowledges all those sacrificed. Gaslighted for speaking up, or begged for help to no avail until it was too late. In this past year, my work has really evolved. By limiting my color palettes and incorporating an emotional theme.
