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.

18" x 24"

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.

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