Rat, Spirit Animal Series

2022, Digital Art, 10″x8″

Reflecting on my perception of myself through animal symbolism, I made a rare attempt at realism in this series of three pieces. In this one I was particularly pleased with the face and mouth and the emotion expressed.

Walrus, Spirit Animal Series

2022, Digital Art, 8"x8"

Digital art is a recent medium I've begun working in. I don't often attempt realism, but in this series of three pieces I reflected on my perception of myself through animal symbolism.

A Black-Tailed Jackrabbit

This surly looking rabbit was out just before sunrise on a cold March morning out on the high plains of eastern Colorado. Rebekah and I had been up all night imaging star trails and stuck around to watch these sunrise when we were joined by this jackrabbit. Jackrabbits are much larger than the desert cottontails we have in the suburbs of Colorado Springs, and much faster. 

I took this photo using a Canon 6D and a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM telephoto lens.

Sloth, Spirit Animal Series

2022, Digital Art, 10″x8″

In yet another early attempt a digital art in this series of three pieces I reflected on my perception of myself through animal symbolism. I am really happy with the texture of the fur and the color detail in the claws.

Queen of the Surface Streets

2012, Acrylic on Canvas, 22″ x 26″

Named after one of my favorite songs by the band Devotchka, this was a reflection on solemnity and beauty. I particularly like the way I was able to achieve depth in the layers that produces a glowing effect.

Stars Through a Newtonian Telescope

2022, Watercolor on Paper, 4"x4"

For a period of time last year, I focused on limiting my canvas size to force myself to create from a new perspective. Typically I work on quite a large scale, but I limited myself within these pieces to communicate within four square inches. Astronomy is a hobby I share with Joel, and this was a nod to our long nights in the dark together spent photographing the stars.


2022, Acrylic on Paper, 10″x12″

During the pandemic I was able to spend time using my art to process my emotions. I feel this captures the feeling of untethered anxiety.


2020, Acrylic on Paper, 10″x8″

Another in the series of my work using art as therapy during the pandemic. An attempt to capture my passionate anger in all of its beautiful ugliness.


2016, Acrylic on Canvas, 14″x12″

From 2015 to 2016 I saw a shift in my art, particularly in experimenting with new methods and techniques. I like the use of space and brushwork in this piece helps convey the cold, moody tone intended.

Mountain Sunset

2020, Watercolor on Paper, 4″x8″

Another in my series of challenging myself to work small. I hoped to embody a sense of peace and the beauty of early morning light in this work.
