Award for Tulip Birds Tile

I won a prize for my Tulip Birds tile last month in the Botanical Tile Juried Exhibition, part of “A Handmade Tile Show” sponsored by Artisan Tile Northwest and UW Botanical Gardens which was held at The UW Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle. The Status Ceramics Award was for color, detail and originality.

Portal into the Root of the Soul

Portal into the Root of the Soul, oil on canvas, 36″x36″, 2012.

My journey into the Amazon Rainforest a decade ago still informs my art. This is a painting of the Shuar goddess Nunqui. She is opening a portal into the earth and into the soul.
