Diffuse Axonal Injury: April 14, 2008
This is the first work I've made dealing with my son's brain injury, caused by an encounter with a large rock cut. It's a cast paper brain with threads representing his neural connections, many of which are broken.

My (Discouragingly) White Life
A Call for Entry from the 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland got me thinking about the cultural make-up of my historically white community, and hence my own life.
