Vanishing Varieties, Autzen Gallery

Oil paintings and an installation with vegetable plants starts based off of my father’s garden journals. Visitors could take a cardboard tray and take plants with them for their own garden. The show was inspired by the seed varieties from own childhood that are not available today.

Local Victory, Launchpad Gallery

Watercolor pencil drawings with an installation element. Imagery was inspired by Victory Garden posters from the 1940’s and my own childhood in a vegetable garden. There has been a resurgence of people growing their own food and this show explores that meaning today.

Cold Storage, Worksound Gallery

Oil painting and cardboard installation: This piece explored the Svalbard Seed Vault. I created “Icebergs” forms with the shape of the countries of each continent. The size of each country was based off of how many seeds they had preserved in the vault.

The Seed Olympics: Falsefront Studio. For this show I created a stop motion video of my seeds starting and played around with the idea of plants competing. The small acrylic paintings are on hand cast surfaces. Plants were also added as part of the display.

Botanical Inspiration: This work is from a range of different shows. Growing up my parents had a Perennial Flower Business at my home. Being surrounded by plants has influenced my work greatly over the years.
