This series of three hand-poured beeswax candles was commissioned for the Shop at the Headlands Center for the Arts, where I have had an Affiliate Artist Studio since 2013. The inspiration for the candles, cast in molds I made from found trophies, was the Headlands campus (a former military base) Building 952, the Gymnasium. Once home to service members’ basketball games and bowling matches, the Gym now comes to life with performances or installations by resident artists. The ephemeral nature of the candle is a poignant nod to the history of the space and its varied inhabitants over the years.
Available online for pick-up only or at Headlands Center for the Arts events.

The wonderful people at 20x200 have made editions of four of my paintings.
Each original painting is created on a sheet of frosted mylar laid over a magazine page. After assigning a color to every letter in the alphabet (numbers are in grayscale, 0=white and 9=black), I apply tiny dots of paint over every character on the page. Each piece I make has a different color codification, and therefore a different palette. The resulting painting is a legible blur of dots in the form of the article's layout‚ like a system of Braille for the color inclined.
These prints available through 20x200 are digital reproductions at affordable prices, in three different sizes.
