The Totem series began in 2013 based on a love for the distinguished art form of the Totem Pole. An unexpected moment in the studio triggered a concept to blend the various styles of artwork from my portfolios, into a stacked, cohesive exploration. The bringing together of concepts, materials and media transformed my perspective of making art, and brought forth a wholistic understanding of my voice in creating works of multi-dimension.

The Totem series blends oil painting with signature linear ink compositions and is enhanced with components from my Journal Series that embraces allegorical imagery. I bombard the surface with mixed media including hand made porcelain, Legos™, sea glass, along with many found and upcycled materials.
