Heart Work is a series of large-scale figurative paintings that
starts with Egyptian Fiction (aka En Trance), The Good Mother,
Osiris (aka The Dead Father), Gaia, The Plight of the Embryo, Panic,
Aftermath and Ka (aka Spiritual Double). They are all life-size figures or larger,
in a variety of media, colorful and iconic.

Years later, the same imagery was reinterpreted into small clay figurative scuptures.

Years later still, at least a decade, the pieces still in my collection were transformed into kimono.

Portraits: I’ve often done a series of portraits (myself, friends, family) at transition points, like when I’m changing media.
