Exhibition Announcement

Palimpsest II was an exhibition during the spring of 2014; it explored the relationship between my paintings, photographs, and etchings. Evidence of time is embedded in the surfaces that have been worked and reworked, sometimes for years, whether in a painting or captured in a photograph. My Palimpsest paintings and etchings were first exhibited with Judy Ireland and Marcia Brookbank at their IXL Gallery on Portrero Hill in San Francisco.
