ANCESTOR FLAG
ANCESTOR FLAG

Passing back and forth between worlds. The flag symbol is a recurring motif for me--such an ancient human form of expression that I find extremely emotional.

A LINGERING PRESENCE
A LINGERING PRESENCE

Weighted and weightless, always present. Perhaps the more we let ourselves see, the more we see.

GONE HOME
GONE HOME

This is the 3rd piece in my Worship Your Ancestors series. It's is about losing people that you love, the soul floating upward, and the delicate cycle of life that is both heartbreaking and beautiful.

COLLECTIVE MEMORY
COLLECTIVE MEMORY

This piece is my 2nd in the Worship Your Ancestors Series. The fragments of artifacts and relics unearthed from the past feel like the skinniest thread to some ancient race memory I can't quite reach, even as it continues to live and breathe all around me.

OLD SOUL
OLD SOUL

I was looking to create a feeling of a strong, otherwordly presence with this piece--powerful but also tender.

ANCESTOR SHIELD
ANCESTOR SHIELD

The shield is one of those timeless symbol shapes that can be found in most cultures. I was looking to create a protection image using an image I created by adapting a gravestone rubbing I did in New England 25 years ago. This piece is the first time I've combined my digital work on metal with my silkscreening.

The iconic power of the shield.

PERPETUAL CARE
PERPETUAL CARE

This piece is the first in a series that I'm calling "Worship Your Ancestors." Since both my parents have passed away, I think much more about the cycle of life, spirit, ritual, and shared memory.

Fly Away

We hold our kites as they pull themselves skyward.

BETWEEN WORLDS
BETWEEN WORLDS

This piece is about spirit and the shifting space between what we think of as "reality" and, perhaps, a bigger reality.

Ancestor Ruin
Ancestor Ruin

Ancestor Ruin. I love seeing the remants of ancient carvings and wanted to recreate that feeling in this piece. And by abruptly cutting off one side, I wanted it to seem like the spirit was sliding in or sliding out..
