Hope is the Light of the Worldformula-for-frame-mockup-foreverglades

We are a hopeful species. From scientists sending recordings of Earth sounds out into space in infinitesimal hope of finding cosmic companionship, to faith, to luck rituals, we brim with the desire for a good outcome. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas and 38X51" canvas.

This Way to Dreamland

This Way to Dreamland

What fun awaits us when we drift off to sleep? 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas, 38X51" canvas

Bucket List

Bucket List

44 unique places in the natural and man-made world meticulously cut and stitched together digitally. The entire scene repeats at the center waterfall. I'm lucky that 1/3 of the photos are mine, but Bucket List would have never been made if I didn't also reach out to other sources. Bucket List was 150+ hours of research and a slow snip-snip process even though it was composed virtually. 16X20", 24X30" canvas, and 38X51" canvas

Into the Light

Into the Light

An invocation to follow your dreams. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas and 38X51" canvas

Austin WSL's version of "Butteflight

Austin WSL's version of "Butteflight

One monarch's journey of grace a determination across the Texas Hill Country. A combination of tradition and innovation, this work has bits of Julian Onderdonk's paintings in the public domain assembled into the panoramic backdrop for the monarch. I took video of monarchs flying, removed them from the backgrounds, and assembled them into the path of one creature digitally. Special 8x10" prints are $50 and 16X20"s are $100 with almost all of that benefitting the Symphony.

Affinity

Affinity

The background forest was lichens growing on a Union soldier in the Texas State Cemetery. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas and 38X51" canvas

We the People

We the People

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The chaos of flip-flopping parties is what keeps the US generally tracking forward over time. But the day-to-day hysteria it causes! Northern European and Italian Renaissance art was a major college passion. Strange, then, it is to sample this overwhelming imagery for just one collage. Life is rich. 16X20"paper with larger top and bottom margins, 24X48" canvas

La Vie

La Vie

We could turn back the hands of time, but think of all the memories we'd lose. A life well-lived is remembering and always still doing. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas

Institutions

Institutions

Some things crumble. Some things prevail. We all have our opinions of what those things should be. Upon love we can agree. 16X20" and 22X28" paper, 24X30" and 38X51" canvas

Amore and More

Amore and More

The Basilica Cistern in Istanbul was a dumping ground for centuries. Now it's been rehabbed into a deeply spiritual space-- the perfect backdrop for a tribute to love. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas

Love is in the Air

Love is in the Air

Digital painting over a daytime scene. I sampled in clouds and a moon. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas and 38X51" canvas

Wait No More

Now you don't have to wait for a rainy day to see rainbows. Digital collage and digital painting. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas and 38X51" canvas

Almost There

Almost There

Stills from video for the monarch, and a low-tech trick to get the light burst effect from my phone to my computer. 16X20" paper, 24X30" and 38X51" canvas

Butterflight

Butterflight

I sampled and rearranged an Onderdonk painting now in the public domain for the backdrop. The monarch path is composed of video stills of monarchs flying rearranged. 16X20" paper, 24X48" canvas

St. Charles Tableau

St. Charles Tableau

An homage to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in general, though I found the white peacock in Austin and the lit victrola under an open sky in Avanos, Turkey. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas

On a Wing and a Prayer

On a Wing and a Prayer

I spent months wondering how to use my shot of this blue morpho. The power of this image is the color and tonal range. So I just used more of that. Sometimes, simplicity best. 16X20" paper and 24X30" canvas

Turn Back the Hands of Time

Turn Back the Hands of Time

A fantasy for us all. But consider all the wonderful experiences you would lose, too. 16X20"paper

Getaway

Getaway

The cascading Turkish lanterns are beautiful and romantic, as are several other images tucked within. This one has a painterly quality. 16X20"paper, 24X30" canvas

Foreverglades

Foreverglades

Photographic images overlaid on one of my oil pastel drawing images. 16X20" paper with larger top and bottom margins.

Luna

Luna

I wondered if you could see light through a moth’s wings. You can, especially on certain nights when the light is just right. 16X20" paper with larger top and bottom margins.

Shelter from the Storm

Shelter from the Storm

Our most delicate creatures know how to protect themselves. I created Shelter for its allegorical value, but also since you simply can't see this anywhere. Think of trying to do macro photography in a driving storm. 16X20" paper

New York City, 52nd Street, 1948, altered. Please see the credits page for more info. 16X20" paper, 24X30"canvas

Locally Sourced

Locally Sourced

Let’s just say Austin iconography isn’t in short supply. My two cents is a little more arcane. These are a few maverick freetail bats flying a few blocks upstream near Rock Island-- not the 20-30 miles downstream with millions of others-- to eat. 16X20" paper with larger top and bottom margins.

Dé Jà (Which Do You Choose?)

Dé Jà (Which Do You Choose?)

One of my first collages. On one level, it's a romantic collage of elements that don't have to relate. But consider the compelling plot twist for the reincarnation-minded: What if you were presented with just a few flash images of the future and had to choose your the next course life from them? Don't sweat it. Life is just a blip in time after all. 16X20" paper

The next few collages are edgier.

Role Reversal

Role Reversal

An open heart is the best path to empathy, but this reversal of fortune is funnier. 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas

The Many Perils of Englebert

The Many Perils of Englebert

Because we've all been there... My husband spied the primary figurines in an antique shop in Bell Buckle, TN. I had a few doll faces in a drawer, and the rest was misery. ;) 16X20" paper

Ah-Hah!

Ah-Hah!

My Utopian fantasy about erasing all the cultural and personal baggage assigned to Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” by removing the anguished person. But what is to be said about the remaining landscape unto itself? I was appalled when I first saw museum shops co-opting The Scream for their gift shops ala life-size punching bags. But here I go now.... 16X20" paper, 24X30" canvas

The Clown Made Me Do It

The Clown Made Me Do It

Seedy to sublime images and a vintage matchbook collected from my travels. Most signage was from the worn parts of town in the midwest, though the beautiful bottles are from Sobu in New Orleans. As night progresses, things get a little fuzzy. 16X20"paper, 24X30" canvas
