art process

I am the originator of the shape combining, “constellation” style of wall art installation in Atlanta. In 2006, I was inspired to experiment with creating round artwork by the wonderful late artist Diane Hause who invited artists to exhibit work on recycled compact disks at her gallery. I developed my wall installation style by 2010 and my first signature-style wall installation was exhibited in 2012. In my installation work, I often use round artwork of small, medium and large sizes combined together to create elegant patterns. Many viewers comment that my organic installation work reminds them of a constellation. As my work evolved, I began incorporating other shapes such as rectangles and squares, as well. A pattern of canvases can suggest a sequence in time, movement or a feeling.

Do you have an exhibit space or wall that needs a change? Let me know how I can help.

My work contains a digital component. I believe the development of digital work as fine art media is exciting and exploring various types of digital media continues to be meaningful to me. The present day is an exciting time for digital art, similar to the time when traditional photography was new and was not yet well understood as a fine art medium.

I work with several types of digital media and frequently use 3D software in creating my wall-hanging artwork. The software is similar to the kind used to create 3D animated films to build a composition or world within the virtual environment of the computer. This virtual world or sculpture can then be ‘photographed’ (rendered) from any angle: top, bottom or sides. The 3D digital process is a unique and time-consuming process that can be thought of as a combination of sculpting and photography. My Flight series work are experiments with particle effect drawing, featuring birds and other creatures that overcome gravity through flight.
