A View From The Bridge
A View From The Bridge is a 30"w x 48"h acrylic painting on canvas. A COVID-19 quarantine creation, this piece is inspired by Arthur Miller's powerful play by the same name. The viewer stands isolated on a bridge and looks through the proscenium stage and into the city, which evokes apprehension, fear, and loneliness.

Awakenings
Awakenings is a 30" x 48" painting in acryIic paint and oil pastel. I sketched in the structure of this painting a few weeks prior to the pandemic but couldn’t figure out how to complete it. Over the next weeks, I painstakingly added underlying colors but was still stalled. Then, after the BLM protests started boiling over, I allowed it to be whatever it wanted, and the deep, dark blues and greens appeared. Purples and reds layered in long strokes and flurries of contrasting twists and swirls.

Monkey Bars
Monkey Bars is a 30"w x 48"h piece using acrylic paint and graphite pencil on canvas. Painting during the pandemic, I was often inside and influenced by the greens and browns outside, hence the green and umber variations. I then wanted a structure to work within and added the bars and cross pieces. I added a second background level with thinned paint that turned into a wet slurry. The ability to write on top with a dark graphite pencil gave me the opportunity to carve into the piece.

I'm Okay, You're Okay
I'm Okay, You're Okay is a diptych of two canvases. The upper canvas is 36"w x 18"h and the lower canvas is 36"w x 24"h. Each depicts a different ominous storm which may have similar content but they never touch one another. As each person faces personal storms, they cannot fully know the struggles of one another, but we can relate and move toward understanding through similar situations.

Black And Blue
Black And Blue is a 36" x 36" painting in acrylic on canvas. It is composed of yellows and blues, inspired by another artist's work of a similar palette. The blacks and blues resonate with the harm caused by police against people of color in our country. The more powerful blues represent the authority held by police officers (referred to as "men in blue") in our society, and the conflict illustrates the issues brought to light by protests across the nation.

Jezebel
Jezebel is a quad of four canvases, each 24" x 24" in acryIic paint. While each canvas is individual in its own right, they are stronger together and work as a harmonious unit. The thread connecting these physically separated canvases is the common color palette. I named this piece Jezebel because each canvas exhibits a different facet of one intense personality. As we all grapple with challenges as a result of the same situation, we are individuals yet we are one.

Double Dipped
Double Dipped is a dyptich of two canvases, each 30"w x 48"h using acrylic paint and oil pastel. These canvases can work independently as separate paintings, but they unite in style and color to create a stronger force together. As we all grapple with new challenges as a result of the pandemic and with the unresolved conflict culminating in the Black Lives Matter movement, we are individuals yet we are one.
