Chase the Monkey
A series of work about moving from being and feeling trapped by limited perceptions to getting back out there in the world and taking advantage of all of life's adventures.
I compiled and created a story inspired by the series, and I call it "Capture the Moon". It took nearly eight years to put it all together!
You can purchase my book through this link.

Thanks to my wonderful supportive community who through Kickstarter and beyond, contributed to this book being printed. I am so grateful to them.
These images were my response to nearly 20,000 wildfires that we had in Southern California from 2006-2008. It was tragic and for some a real wake up call that we needed to work with Mother Nature's systems rather than imposing our own upon her. Global warming. Climate change. Indifference. Fear. Unconsciousness. Loss.
The Narrative Works
I am fascinated with the dynamic tension between women and their environments, real and imagined. Everything from mundane and everyday occurrences to catastrophic events influence my scenarios.
Land and Sea Paintings
Moving from Southern California, living in a nice white cube, and coming up north with great expanses of land and sea was overwhelming at first. I chose the long thin format because it was all that I could take in at once, a small piece. The natural world is powerful and beautiful.
Life Imitates Art
This is a placeholder for how I explain how my art informs my life. More to come.
This new narrative series of paintings depicts the eclipsing of landscapes (personal, emotional and physical) by environmental, political and socio-economic events.
Ghostly monkey figures create an eerie and sometimes violent shadowing over commonly beloved urban and rural scenes.
How can we see our favorite spaces the same with the acceleration of insane and destructive policies?
