This large acrylic on canvas painting (6' x 8') was a reaction to the devastation caused by the Northern California wine fires in Napa and Sonoma Counties. The base layer consists of ashes from these fires embedded in black gesso. I applied the colorful acrylic paint with large and small sponges, working layer upon textured layer as the story unfolded. From the ashes, new life springs up in verdant array.
Since graduation from Bennington College, I have exhibited my unique reclaimed materials sculpture, artbots, and visionary paintings and drawings nationally and internationally, starting with The International Young Artists Exhibition in Osaka, Japan. My work resides in numerous public and private collections including: Tonellerie Taransaud, Cognac; The Spertus Museum, Chicago; The Oakland Museum of California, Sony Corporation, First National Bank of Arizona, Francois Freres, St. Romain, France, and Paramount Pictures for the set of Star Trek: Voyager.
