Antler Head

Antler Head is finished! I carved a big wooden bone, hollowed it out, filled it with electronics and then affixed the Antler Head stone to the wood. I also deepened the grooves of the teeth to make them more pronounced. The eyes are marbles glued to washers. It was important to have translucent eyes so […]

Meet Sardonicus & The Emperor

We have a trail that winds through cedar trees and grass lands and a big hill. The trail is winding and both dark and sun-speckled as sun light filters through the trees. There’s lots of stumps and rocks and perfect places to display art in a dramatic outdoor setting. But outside art needs to be […]

Woman in Fear

This is another painting in my “Woman in …” series. This is about fear; being trapped by and being liberated from. I was thinking about near death experiences and about how your perspective radically shifts at that moment. How things that were so important become meaningless and how the things that were holding you back […]

Woman Intense

This is part of my “Woman in…” series. When I painted this, I was thinking about what “intense” would look like. When I think about someone who is intense, I think: -About getting up in somebody’s face. -About having so much energy & emotion, you can’t get the words out. -It’s about burning up. -It’s […]

There are raised, sculptural lines […]

Because of this hard work, YOU can now buy one of my original t-shirt designs . Woo-hoo! After much research, I decided to use a company called […]

Demon Warriors

I took photos of a sculpture I finished a while back. Actually, I just added the weapon today. The original version was of two winged demons locked in combat. Now, with the addition of a ferocious weapon, the combat is mortal (for at least one of them). This piece is made of copper wire, solder, […]

Whirling Dervish

Last night, in a marathon, 4 hour, art-making session, I finished my Whirling Dervish piece. This is my first piece that incorporates movement and lights. The spinning LEDs are the “whirling part” of my Dervish. I was inspired to take this step by the Robot Group . The wire leads to a battery pack that […]

Well, I just submitted my entry into the “Pabst 2008 Art Contest .” I had 59 minutes to spare, so I’m kickin’ back and drinking a well deserved PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) and preparing my taste buds for a year’s supply of beer (if all goes well). I’d like to thank Betsey for letting me […]
