First test: Album Display
I have always been fascinated with the intellectual challenge attendant to the “technical”, while at the same time, I was equally taken with the artistic side of projects. By focusing on both the complex and the aesthetic aspects, my satisfaction with the results increasingly depended on how successful I considered my efforts to have been in bringing together these aspects. Some may not see the relationship, but I recognize the contrasts and embrace the dichotomies. This may explain my desire to work in various artistic mediums; stoneware/porcelain clay, realism watercolor painting and hand-weaving. Often trading time between these mediums within a given year.
My work reflects who I am. I care about attention to detail and the nostalgic. I adore texture and pattern, weathered metal/brick, antique buttons and wax seals. I am especially drawn to the subjects of architecture, fish and vintage automobiles. I also draw inspiration from my time spent at home in New Mexico and the southern San Juan mountains of Colorado.
Most importantly, I am interested in integrating these elements, inspirations, subjects and surface into my work using various media and techniques.
I am fortunate to do what I love in a full-time manner, every single day.
