2019, Sharpie and ballpoint on paper
I'm always inspired by the ballpoint-pen-effect's appeal to life itself, in that to create depth and meaning one must commit to tediously repetitious strokes. Life's work is never complete, as shows the "unfinished" look of the composition.
We've lost the snot
2020, watercolor and colored pencil on paper
Oh, COVID, you eclipsing, deceitful little snot.
Hashtag "carbon neutral", "water positive", and "net zero"
Where's the negative?
The Venetian dolphins have returned to the canals
6,000 fewer European children have developed asthma
Everest shines clearly once more
And if all fails, at least we've got space (x)
Blah blah blah, 2020, blah blah blah
2020, acrylic on paper
On fire, with a knife.
2021, mixed media on paper
Lobularia maritima (Sweet Alyssum) grows by the sea in New South Wales and has a mustardy flavor both subtly peppery and sweet. Alyssum coming from the Greek "alysson" meaning 'without madness'.
As a chef, I've found this little garnish is a favorite on sweet and savoury dishes alike.
2021, acrylic and pencil on paper
Growth requires rooting deep and outgrowing pots.
2020, watercolor and pencil on paper
Inspired by my summertime dining experiences while road tripping across the southern French countryside. I think of the vividly colored lemons, tomatoes, and lavender softly etched onto quilted placemats and napkins. So goddamn dreamy.
Rock bottom morels
2018, pencil on paper
Or was that morel less rock bottom?
No smocking gun...
2019, pencil and Sharpie on paper
2017, coffee* and Sharpie on paper
“Black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel, sweet as love.”
-Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord
My ode to the precise art of making the little cup of brewed goodness (and perhaps the rather discerning ways of little Goldilocks):
Under, you're salty,
Watery, and acidic
Over, you're dull,
Just right? Hmm.
That's the only kind of right
