My work involves layering stains onto pre-printed fabric sometimes adding floating images layered on top of those. The idea of staining pre-printed fabric began in work I did as an undergaduate at the University of Texas at Austin. The first work involved using wood stain which I was using for sculptural pieces at the time. The symbolic idea of staining fabric and its connotations interested me as it pertained to the physical act of making art.
I have also experimented with film/video work as wel as installation art over the years and still occasionally work in those media.
After getting my graduate degree at the University of North Texas in Denton I was involved with the oldest artist cooperative in Texas called 500X Gallery. That experience was great as it allowed for entering into the gallery system without any of the dealer restrictions or outside influences that develop from that relationship. I was part of that group for four years and briefly served as vice president.
Our family moved to New Braunfels after the birth of our second daughter and my main focus has been on my family. My current work reflects that as the main bulk of recent work being completed is portraits of my family.
I am interested in forming a cooperative gallery in New Braunfels similar to the one at 500X. If you are interested in finding out more about this email me at email@example.com.
