About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    I hope for viewers' interaction with my works; that my work may create an avenue through which to view their own space and experiences.
  • Resume

    I am a contemporary artist, now working primarily in sculpture & painting, public art. I have in the past used etching presses, collage, rubbings to create artist books.I use a wide variety of found materials and draw on my extensive travels to create thoughtful and vivid responses to my current environment. Many of my recent paintings are on paper, unframed and are displayed via rods through a rear sleeve.The public art works I've created can be seen throughout the city: on three city busses, the Festival Plaza mural, the Stoner Heroes sculpture and Bilberry Park installation and mural in collaboration w. the Pyramid Group. I created two metal sculptures for LA on Texas & a temporary mural in Artspace for the Folk Art exhibit.As an undergraduate, I studied with Mark Rothko, Ad Reinhardt, Kurt Seligman, Jimmy Ernst, Burgoyne Diller, Alfred Russell, Robert Jay Wolfe, Stmao Papdaki, Rob't. Rosenbloom, Jose DeRivera, Milton Brown, Harry Holtzman. I received the Masters in Liberal Arts from LSU-S, and am ABD in Curriculum Theory at LSU-BR.
