As an artist I am influenced by our beautiful state of Kentucky and all of the world’s natural wonder. Trees have a spiritual connection with my imagination. They are an endless source of inspiration for the creation of my art. Within their presence I feel a sense of enchantment that I try to capture in my work and hope to relate to the viewer.
I developed my art process on my own out of a combination of life and work experiences. Images are taken from my imagination and drawn onto mat board. The board is then hand-cut, texturized and painted to achieve a three-dimensional sculpture. The resulting piece is then framed between two sheets of glass.
My work has been shown in the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, the Artcraft Collection in Maryland, The Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, The Kentucky Center for the Arts, Bernheim Forest, The Raymond Clark Gallery in South Carolina, Damsel Fly Gallery, The Kentucky State Capitol, and many other venues.
