Footprints We Leave

A highly abstracted and exploding composition, layered of quantitative forms superimposed upon an ambiguous landscape suggesting a tectonic cleft, as a storied map of describing evolution and transcendence.

The Song The Wind Sings

The song the wind sings
The tears the rain cried
white waves
blue against the shore
seeds sown



To The Moon And Back

And To The Moon and Back II (left), received 3rd place in The Ilinois Watercolor Society’s Small Works Exhibition.
