I’m excited to debut a series of new drawings on Friday, April 22 at 51st State in Washington, DC!
Inspired in part by patterns in nature, mystical imagery and pop iconography, this series of drawings incorporates subtle humor and repetitive detail to explore themes of boundaries between self and other.
March is Women’s History Month and I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in events supporting and celebrating female artists. On March 5, I had a great time exhibiting as part of Fiverr’s Celebration of Women: Artists & Entrepreneurs in New York City, which brought together “some of today’s most innovative artists and entrepreneurs who are working their creative powers and owning it!”

Four of my works will be on view this month in downtown Frederick, MD during the Blue Moon Festival.

For 30 days, I’m going to produce a drawing a day. Some days this may be elaborate, some days simple. These could be collaborative or solo drawings, pen and ink, pencil, complex and shaded or simple doodles. The goal is to keep generating ideas without pressure…or work through a lack of ideas. I’ll post these to a Facebook album here.
Shootout at the DaDa Salon brings together nine DC-area artists whose work defies expectations, taking the viewer on a winding journey. Surrealism? Dada? These local artists march to the beat of their own drummers. In these works, they redefine aesthetics as they so please, confront cultural mores, swallow them, digest them, and defy logic in works that stand in a universe of each artist’s own creation. This diverse collection of 2D and 3D works alludes to reality, but a reality that has been twisted and subjected to each artist’s will. Their unique voices help us reflect on the sometimes harsh realities of our physical world and our ability, through art and humor, to transcend them.
