ARTIFACTS 2017

I am not a lie. 

I am a truth.

Slow Ink

I remember

gilt letters

Black stones a cold shore

Cross my water

Row my tears

Drowning Dry 

Sow my fears.

Rum for the Gods, Rum for the Spirits.

Run from the Gods, Run from the Spirits.

ARTIFACTS is a glimpse into my process as an artist. I begin with daily writing, develop ideas, make models, and work and re-work.
