CONCEPTUAL ART

BEE WORKS

Award-winning series that uses the bodies of thousands of dead honey bees to create symbolic patterns that bring awareness to the plight of worldwide honey bee decline.

DETACHMENT

Soldiers memorialized in the stars on the centennial of their battles, using the 640,000 brass pins that originally held together their WW1 personnel files.

 

LOVE IS BLIND

 

Anamorphic sculpture appears as a simple heart from a head-on perspective, but shifts into something far more sinister when seen from a different point of view.

MIGRATION

 

Site specific climate change installation subverts the monarch butterfly migration with freshwater pearl mussels.

 

20 SECONDS

 

I created this piece while self-isolating during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, using only the materials I had on hand in my studio.

 

TIPPING POINT

 

Single-use plastics, repeated en masse, create a looming, bleached-white skeletal reef, rife with heartbreaking symbolism about climate change.

FIGHT OR FLIGHT

 

A shoal of balsa wood flying fish leap from the peak of one threat into another - a metaphor for the competing anxieties of 2020's COVID-19 pandemic.

 

NEEDLE POINT (SNOWFLAKE)

 

Climate change protest art made from thousands of dead sequoia needles, arranged in traditional needlework pattern.

 

HOMONYM

 

Ever notice how the exact same noise can elicit different emotional responses from you, depending upon the context? Same sound, different meaning = a homonym.
