Copper and brass with patina and garnet
Hand-bent copper wire hoops were linked together to create a unique chain to hold a rotating set of geometric pieces. Entrapped in the center cube is a chunk of raw garnet. Pieces were soldered and threaded together. Turning knobs were pressed from circular molds used when the bracelet below was made. Every piece sat in blue patina until the desired color was achieved. The necklace rotates as you move, but it is also very satisfying to play with.
Copper and brass with patina
This over-sized statement piece is simple enough in design to match the style of many different types of outfits while still being the reason heads are turning. Brass tubes and rods delicately separate two bent copper rectangles embellished with irregular circles. This piece sat in blue patina until the desired color was achieved, and then sanded off of the brass tubes.
Oil on canvas
This architectural painting is based on a collage of magazine clippings assembled to create an interior fantasy display. The figures are bathed in a piercing red light that camouflages their differences and invites them in as moving set pieces of the space.
Oil on canvas
Inspired by my fear of the ocean, this painting swirls and loops down and around the frightening depths of the ocean. The serene boats floating on top of this madness are blissfully unaware of the treachery looming beneath them.

UICCU BenchMarks is a nationally recognized public art program. For 2017, the program continued with 21 benches that were found throughout downtown Iowa City, completed by local artists chosen by a panel of judges. For this bench, I chose a clean geometric theme with bold colors and a summery-feel.
