If you’ve followed my blog about making these

please come see them live.


Thank you to all the valued professionals

who help make my shows happen every year.

Kristine Schomaker (,

my art manager — advisor – PR rep,

consulted on these works in studio visits all year.

As a curator, Kristine included me in other shows.

“In the Current” was at Blue Roof in June.

This porno peach was created for her

“Let Me Eat Cake” pop-up at POST in July.

Art critic Shana Nys Dambrot

saw the earliest 3 of this series in a preview

at MuseuMM in February.

She reminded me that the beauty of palm fronds 

need significant augmentation

to develop from found objects to art.

So I went back and did “Bionic Angel”

with detailed sculpture and copper wire.

It took months before I revisited the frond shape

in “Stay With Me,”

the most complex construction in the show.

Once the work is done, it has to go on a wall…

Every year Monica Nouwens and Melanie Aron

photograph my new series, no matter how reflective
