NEW PAINTINGS 2022

“A Still Life of Time”
24"x36”
oil on canvas
2022

This still life was inspired by old locks and keys in my friend’s garage, Fiona Apple’s song lyrics to “Valentine”, a Tyler Knott Gregson poem, an old Holly Brook song called “Heavy”.
It’s a portrait of my thoughts on the relationship between desire and creativity, time and how to use it, the journey of life and how to balance everything….and all the secrets we hide from ourselves and others, or walls we build as time passes. 


“Transformation”
18" x 24"
Oil on Panel
2022

My Spring Goddess
Female Monarchs lay eggs on milkweed plants in the Spring. The eggs then go through the transformation of becoming a caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly. The butterfly is also a beautiful symbol of transformation for the transgender community. 

“Frozen Dream”
18" x 24"
Oil on Panel
2022
(SOLD)

My Winter Goddess
She came to me in a dream. Everything was white and quiet and peaceful and still.

Flower Series on display at 614 Cookman Ave, Asbury Park, NJ

The colors of the flowers in this series coincide with the colors of the Pride flag. These paintings were made for a window installation for Pride Month in Asbury Park, NJ. 

Since its debut in 1978, the Pride flag has become an iconic symbol of the LGBTQIA+ community. It celebrates gay pride, community, queer love, self-love, inclusivity, diversity, resistance, unity, acceptance, awareness, tolerance, freedom, power, hope, and so much more. 

In the original eight-stripe version of the flag, red was chosen to represent love and life, orange for healing, yellow for sunshine, green for nature, blue for art, indigo for harmony, violet for spirit, and pink for sexuality
