I make memento mori in a variety of media from embroidered textiles to full-sized billboards. The intent of the work is to encourage the viewer to be mindful of the ephemeral nature of life, nations, and human endeavors. Notwithstanding the seriousness of the subject I try to infuse the message with more wit than morbidity.

My work also reflect the atmosphere of uncertainty and agitation, fear and instability of life in the current world order.
