a merging of the silly and the sincere

The "sincere" :  My serious paintings: Observation of nature, meditative/observational painting or responding to a space

The "silly" : Obsessions with snack food, cereal, macaroni and cheese, childhood celebrity crushes, embarrassing/funny nostalgia, my character "Ashley" and her ecstatic journaling business

Journalistic work:

Metaphor: Poetry & visual art
