Winston-Salem, NC | Exhibiting Since 2012

I use anonymous x-rays blended with hand painted imagery to create works on paper and works that are transilluminated.  My work transforms real images of injury (actualy X-rays, CT’s, MRI’s, Angiograms, Doppler and Pet scans) into new scenes of healing, hope, acceptance or even a new outcome.  The films I use are submitted to me in my work as a medical illustrator and as such are part of a patient’s medical history in order to create medically accurate images.  But my fine artwork is the opposite: I put aside clinical facts so the once diagnostic images become emotional Rorschach splotch tests.  They are my meditations on a patient’s recovery.
