    My art is a collection of artifacts abandoned in the world around me. I collect this plastic, metal, wire, string, yarn, toys and other discarded objects because these things have value, value that may have been used up by someone else. I feel like I am never not making art. Collecting, sorting, cataloging and organizing what I find is a form of art making in and of itself. When I exclusively painted I was always looking at how layers could be exposed and covered up and exposed again. The sculpture I make now is made in layers. My first layer is finding interesting objects.

  • Dear Lauryn Displayed in Times Square New York

    This painting was painted using Metallic Gold Paint in Honor of Lauryn Hill. This painting was the Curators choice to display in New York during the Art Takes Time Square Exhibit 2012 in Manhattan.
  • Muse Annie II - From Within

    Here I've pulled out three pages from the content of one book package, the acknowledgements page (listing where some of the poems have been published, such as AMERICAN POETRY REVIEW and PARAGRAPH, for example), the title page, and one of the (prose) poems. The lavender piece of construction paper is from the 70s and came in a package still sealed, the orange piece is from the 50s and came gently bound but not sealed in a package of 12 and the "buff" (as it was described) piece of construction paper is also from the 70s.

  • Muse Annie II - The Back

    Here is one example of what the book description given in the Project Overview looks like "on" the back of the book (really just packaged after the last piece of construction paper, the last "page" of the chapbook). Here I've printed it on vintage wallpaper.
  • red installation

    Artomatic is art event held in Washington D.C. The location they used to hold the event in was slated to be gutted or torn down so their was a lot of freedom to experiment with the space. I used this opportunity to experiment with installation ideas. I was able to do a wall covering treatment and use the whole space as a sculptural environment. A home for the sculptural elements that are also included in my space.
