Fine art & gallery shows

I work in oils, watercolors, ink and other media. My works explore the borders between nature, science, and spirituality.

My influences began with Hildegaard of Bingen and other medieval artists. Then, studying Latin-America in college, I fell in love with Mexican and Mexican-American folk art. I am also deeply influenced by the work and lives of artists I have been fortunate to know and learn from, including Jo Knox, Ralph “Ralphabetz” Frank, and the many artists in my family: Charles, Sarah, Carol, Abigail, and John Karp. Finally, the ecosystems in which we live generate endless inspiration: ice, wildflowers, rivers, ridges, fractals.

My art has been featured at the Zootown Arts Community Center, the Fresh Paint gallery, and the University Center at the University of Montana, as well as two solo exhibitions in Missoula: “Submerged” at Computer Central, and “Telecommunications,” a series of painted DirecTV dishes, at Le Petit Outre.
