I am a visual artist/poet. My paintings are primarily oil on panels. Currently, I am working on a series called Inside/Out. Inside/Out comprises a group of oil paintings and poems, half of which consist of a series of interior paintings and poems and another half consists of a series of waterscapes. Having these two disparate series exhibited together forces attention on the nature of our humanity: trying to be controlled, perfect beings in a world (rooms) that we have constructed versus the wild physical earth that we have little control over.
