My Profession: Art
About my work:
Compelled by the controlling role rhythm can play in an often chaotic environment, it is my goal to provide series of concentrated images, forms and when possible audio/visual experiences that will describe or depict discoveries of simple, rhythmic elements. A search for essential and orderly properties of organic forms, patterns, and systems directs my explorations where collected material is dissected and recorded as stylized data. The outcome of these exercises in observation and dissection as thematic intent has become apparent in all my work including drawing, printmaking, bookwork, and ceramics, as well as multi-media installation and performance art.

Currently, my studio is anywhere I am, anytime, but mostly at home in Montevallo, Alabama where new bodies of work for current and upcoming exhibitions, installations and performance works are in process. “texturial: an incoherent love letter” is the working title of an in-process multi-media installation and performance utilizing disjointed found text as the foundational element for the development of various aspects of the piece. “Ancient Night Walker's Journey to the Ani-yun'wiya Elohino Crystalline Core," is a pentaptych of Lite Brite�"� drawings being realized as materials become available. “Drawing Mountains” is an ongoing series of pen and ink drawings, watercolor mono-serigraphs and unique book works inspired by photographs of mountain ranges, developed in collaboration with the Mountain Maker Cohorts FaceBook Group instigated for the project. HoWaYaDa is a collaborative group exploring installation and performance work utilizing assemblage and electronics, along with language manipulation and playful game exercises. In addition, my “pen and ink studies” and “orbis poculli” (atmosphere fired ceramic pinch pots), as well as further installation and performance explorations are in process.
