I am passionate about art, social justice and environment. I believe we can make this world a better place for all. Through art I hope to engage individuals to examine where we are in this small moment of time and place and then to act individually to create change that is larger than any of us. 

What I do.

My goal is to trigger a memory or feeling. I manipulate color in ways that may transport you to another time or place. My multi media paintings are the record of actions and imprints. They represent an event where choices were made. Some kept, some obliterated and replaced. They represent a journey of discovery. A conversation. There are many inputs for each singular piece. 

My paper sculptures experiment with representing the disparity between paper that is used, recycled and gold that is thin yet supported by the paper. 

Why Patreon?

I've been painting other's people's art for more than 20 years. Theatre sets, movie sets, murals, art reproductions. It's time for my own work. Projects I want to do have been pushed aside year after year in order to make a living and pay bills. I decided a while back that I would save up and be my own patron. While that's a great idea, and I have managed a level of success with that endeavor, it's not sustainable. And that is why, Patreon.  A wonderful perk that I have learned as I began to meet and get to know my patrons, is that they are so much more than just financial support. They are my inspiration. They visit the studio and marvel at pieces I have set aside. Through Patreon I hope to develop relationships with others that like my art and my passion and believe in my vision for a better future. 

I have recently gotten rid of my rewards on this page. I found I was not promoting this site because I didn't believe in it's method money and rewards. I am a socialist. I believe that my art is for everyone no matter what your financial contribution. I value my patrons for all the ways they support me financially and beyond. That being said, when I have something to offer I will give to my patrons. I invite everyone to come to Studio Coffee's and other events through the years.

I will post how the Pollock exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art has inspired me. You will see my own experimenting with his techniques and style. You will also see what emerges from my interpretation of his works.
