Join me at the opening on June 1st, 6-9pm, at Show Pony Gallery in Santa Fe.

I've created two new paintings for the upcoming group show 50 Years Of Fight /// 50 Years Of Future at Show Pony Gallery in Santa Fe. Each piece weaves poetry, spells, and sigils to invoke powerful future visions for gender-creative folks. As part of the show, I will also be offering a writing workshop for queer & trans community - more details here.

Show is on view June 1st - 30th, 2019.

June 16th, 2019: "Writing Ourselves Free," A Workshop for Queer & Trans Community.


In this 2 hour writing workshop we will experiment, play, and have the opportunity to share what we create in community with other queer, trans, and gender-creative folks. We will get inspired by examples of brave and gorgeous queer writing, and we’ll use writing prompts to get our own juices flowing around themes related to identity, courage, and the future. Workshop is open to folks writing in all genres. Workshop will be led by Jacks McNamara.

This workshop is being offered at Show Pony Gallery as part of the month-long exhibition 50 Years of Fight/50 Years of Future. 50 years is a group show centered around Trans Futurity that includes the work of local trans, genderqueer, and other non-binary artists.

Opening April 13th, 2018: "Learning About Light," a solo show in Santa Fe.

"Learning About Light: October." Ink on wood panel, 16" x 20".
"May You Find the Sublime." Ink on birch round, approx 5.5" diameter.

Join me at the opening on April 13th, 2018, 5-7pm, at Iconik.

I'll share an innovative series of recent ink and mixed media paintings on wood in the show “Learning About Light.” Drawing inspiration from the natural and the mechanical, this work assembles a unique vocabulary of patterns, textures, and color to create an abstracted language for the residue of seasons, synesthesia, and hope.

Show is on view April 13th - June 4th, 2018.
