These portraits (sometimes self-portraits) mine our mythological history and leap out at you from across a room. There is maybe a whiff of Andy Warhol here but it is only a whiff. This isn't all magic and sparkles. There is an exploration of politics in queer culture as much as a celebration of that culture.
These pieces are mixed media--colored pencil, oil, jewelry, flashe (vinyl-based paint), collage, glitter, ceramic knobs (see eyes below).
