Happy Autumn! As the leaves turn colors here in Minnesota, I feel compelled to say how grateful I am that you’re receiving my newsletter. This month I’m thrilled to announce two significant solo exhibitions and a new initiative.
On September 30, I launched a major solo show of new work at the MMAM. The exhibition is conceived as a response to the conceptual and physical manifestations of water – both for me personally and as a vehicle to draw out broader discussions about the role water plays in our lives. On display is all new work, including nine large paintings, a number of scrolls, artist’s books, and a major new work – a huge installation room with sound. I created colorful and powerful works that invite the audience to consider their lives in connection to water. The work highlights the powerful and mesmerizing presence of water while also presenting it as a place for contemplation, solus, and reflection.
The exhibition runs through January 22, 2023. There are a number of auxiliary events, including Open Days for the family and an artist’s talk.

Collaboration with Bullseye Studio - Untitled, 2022, Glass, 13” x 20”
I am currently collaborating with Bullseye Studio at Bullseye Glass Co., Portland, OR. developing fabrication techniques to express my work in the medium of glass. The small works like the one pictured will be scaled up for large-scale, monumental public artworks. Bullseye are masters at working with glass and interpreting artist’s ideas into that medium. This piece is created to be experienced from two sides like a window, thus creating a translucent light and color experience from both sides of the glass. This material is weather safe and able to withstand outdoor elements and at a monumental scale. Stay tuned for more announcements on my public artworks.
