4-1-17 *Created for a friend. My intention was expressing my friend in this art-form* Where to start with this one. From the center emanates a cross, and sections of three in each arm; pyramids and the scorpio symbol above them. The pyramids also seem to have an eye placed at the top. This section then moves on to much bigger, […]
3-13-17 – “Stepping Down” I absolutely love this piece looking back on it at a different time. When I created it, as with most that I create, I become dissatisfied midway through, doubting my abilities, doubting my connection. Recently, I had read a book that covered some of Carl Jungs’ observations of mandalas. When a clockwise motion is seen, […]

9-15-16 – “Tension in the Eye of the Suffering” This was another mandala that I decided to test out on canvas versus sketchbook paper.
8-10-16 “Formless” Something about color vs. black and white really seems to bother me. I can’t wrap my head around it really. This was done in an orange/red sharpie and a fine tip black one. My favorite part about this piece is the staircase located underneath the lower “swirl.” The rest of it just doesn’t suit me for visual purposes. […]
