Mixed Media

We are exposed to so much information all of the time. It all started with the newspaper.

We continue to get news from the paper. The front page news is usually some big event that occured and is usually not a positive one. It’s hard to remember all of the good that is happening when the front page headlines are blaring the negative.

Therefore, we must sift through and find, whether big or small, the positive things that occur right now and read about them. The world operates as yin and yang and there will always be something going wrong, but there will always be something going right in this world as well.

There is plenty of positive news happening including community coming together, honoring a career, reading your horoscope, appreciating arts and culture, and so much more.

This process is exactly how we handle our mentality too. One must constantly remind oneself of the positivity that is around us. It’s important to be aware and acknowledge what is going on, but the big picture needs to embrace the positive aspects of life.

Life is too short to dwell on the negativity.
Let’s celebrate all of the GOOD NEWS in this world!

SOLD

As we go through each day’s journey, twilight guides us through the shift from day to night and night to day. At morning twilight, the sun’s rays start to peak on our side of the earth. It’s time to meditate and get ready for the day. A time to stretch and breath; a moment of calm. After our full day of adventure, twilight is there to greet us again, giving us time to reflect, take a deep breath, and relax. The sun has set. The moon has yet to rise. It’s quiet, and I am at peace. The life cycle continues, living by the sun and the moon.

I am interested in power – whether it is the power of relationships or the literal interpretation of power that makes things run. This piece is my take on the water wheel that has played such a major role in our history, from the windmills that provided water to the rural communities, to the paddleboats navigating through the rivers. I have created this work for the viewer to spin, and have fun with the interaction it provides.

People have all types of experiences with their environment. A major relationship I have had throughout my life is with water. I grew up swimming in my parents' pool, swimming in the Pedernales River, going to Port Aransas, Texas, and going to college in St. Petersburg, Florida. This piece plays with my sense of being connected to water, and seeing the energy of water in a new light.

Bluebonnets are iconic to the central Texas Hill Country. Every spring, thousands of people flock to the fields of bluebonnets to take photographs of their families and friends, and artists bring the blue and violet fields to life in paintings. This is my version of the Texas bluebonnets.

My family used to have a river house on the Pedernales River, and every year, we would revel in the beautiful fields of bluebonnets. This piece invites the viewer to be a part of the field of bluebonnets by being reflected in the mirror profiles. This is my way to interact with our beautiful state flower.

This piece is influenced by my time in Florida. I lived in a little beach community called Passagrille in St. Petersburg, Florida. Every morning, I would go for a run on the beach, watching the golden sun shine on the water and the breeze blow through the sea grasses. This is my interpretation of the sea grasses, combined with my “life is good” attitude.
