The paint­ings are ren­dered pri­mar­i­ly in acrylic paint and often include the use of Sharpie ® per­ma­nent mark­ers, paper col­lage and oth­er mixed media. The sub­jects of these paint­ings range from the mys­te­ri­ous Cad­do Lake, abstract com­po­si­tions, the female form to pieces that tell a sto­ry- most­ly about the artist’s journey.

Sculpt­ed works fab­ri­cat­ed in met­al are abstract pieces com­posed of geo­met­ric and twist­ed rem­nants of steel while works in clay tend to have more of a human ele­ment such as female tor­sos and styl­ized busts.

All things are raw mate­r­i­al for cre­at­ing, the sketch­book, pho­tos, trips and per­son­al rela­tion­ships all blend togeth­er to cre­ate this art.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=“CV” tab_id=“1556904212591–5cf4ad24-124fcfc7-1e2fbf04-4ffa89a3-5384a060-915c”][vc_column_text]Coming Soon[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=“Artist Inter­view” tab_id=“1568909533515-fedbc4f1-d4bc”][vc_column_text]What are your ear­li­est mem­o­ries relat­ed to art?
I could draw, it was the card dealt to me and I just keep play­ing it.[/vc_column_text][us_separator size=“small”][vc_column_text]How and when did you start becom­ing an artist yourself?
I was born with the gift but real­ly came into focus in 1984 when I first exhib­it­ed my art in a two-man show in Shreve­port, LA.[/vc_column_text][us_separator size=“small”][vc_column_text]What was the evo­lu­tion like toward find­ing your cur­rent voice and visu­al vocabulary?
When I tried oth­er medi­ums oth­er than paint­ing like weld­ing steel and mod­el­ing clay, that gave my art more body.[/vc_column_text][us_separator size=“small”][vc_column_text]What is your process like?
Ger­mi­nate the idea, gath­er mate­ri­als and cre­ate cir­cum­stances to sup­port that idea and man­i­fest into being — repeat if necessary.[/vc_column_text][us_separator size=“small”][vc_column_text]Is there any­thing from your artist state­ment that you wish to expound on, that you nor­mal­ly don’t have the chance to discuss?
Every­thing is raw mate­r­i­al for cre­at­ing — once that was real­ized, mate­ri­als and inspi­ra­tion arrived.[/vc_column_text][us_separator size=“small”][vc_column_text]What do you try to con­trol in your sur­faces, and what do you leave to chance?
My graph­ic arts pro­duc­tion expe­ri­ence tends to cre­ate more defined lines although I’ve vio­lat­ed those to form oth­er images that are less defined.[/vc_column_text][us_separator size=“small”][vc_column_text]Where do you see your work going from here?
Cre­at­ing and sell­ing my art in a broad­er area once I’ve retired from the graph­ics business.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_tabs][/vc_column][vc_column width=“1/6”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=“middle” width=“full” css=”.vc_custom_1556905803913{padding-right: 5% !important;padding-left: 5% !important;}”][vc_column][us_grid post_type=“attachment” images=“1661,1667,1668,1669,1670,1671,1672,1673,1674,1675,1676,1677,1678,1679,1680,1681,1682,1683,1684,1685,1686,1687,1688,1689,1690,1691,1692,1693,1694,1695,1696,1697,1698,1699,1700,1701” items_quantity=“15” pagination=“ajax” items_layout=“gallery_default” type=“masonry” columns=“3” overriding_link=“popup_post_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
