11,842 Lakes (Large works on panel)

I've split my life between the disparate climates and geography of my birthplace of more than 10,000 Lakes and an adopted home of the Sonoran Desert. The juxtaposition of these two places have created an obsession about water. I call on memory to pay homage to a rich relationship to the lakes of my homeland. The sparse palette is reflective of open water summer and snowbound winters. These are acrylic paint with fibers woven into the birch panels through drilled holes.
