These galleries represent six distinct bodies of work that I create under the studio name Snarky Art and the fashion line Hoard Couture. The acrylic paintings highlight the lives of women with wit and humor. The oversized soft pastel portraits capture momentary expressions of strangers. The small scale sculptural dresses bring together a lifetime of memories. "Hoard Couture" is my fashion line under a federal trademark that uses sculptural art garments to explore contemporary issues as well as creating wearable pieces from unconventional materials. The photos and the botanicals are new and ongoing bodies of work of which I am very excited to explore the possibilities. Please enjoy exploring these galleries and my thoughts about the different pieces.
