Bio

I currently reside in Evansville, Indiana but I grew up on my family’s farm in Western Kentucky. That area would provide inspiration that I still use in my work today. I have many passions, but I have always been most passionate about is art, and art education. I studied art education at Murray State University and during this time was able to explore several art mediums to better teach a wide variety of art styles and techniques. I was always a shy, quiet child and learned at an early age to use art for my own expression and communication. Still, as an adult, I use art to communicate what I can’t in words. I am currently a middle school visual arts teacher. I feel it is important for growing children to explore their own feelings, opinions, and be able to express through the language of visual arts.

Artist Statement

Time constantly passes over us leaving behind the remains of what once was. My art largely deals with the passing of time and the commonality of times effect on everything and everybody. I explore time not being a beginning or an ending, but a never-ending cycle. An example of this idea is evident in my painting Rerum Gestarum (Events of Circumstance). Rerum Gestarum is about striving for solidarity and meaning in life, all with the acknowledgement of life’s unpredictable frailness and eventual physical ending, but still existing in time even after we are gone. Growing up on a farm, I was exposed to acres of nature, machinery, and livestock I would spend my time walking down fencerows, exploring creeks, and examining the life cycles of a farm. I was fascinated by expansive spaces, gnarled tree roots, abandoned grain-bins, rusted tools and the expendable livestock. All these things combined started my fascination with cycles of both living organisms and objects.

My earliest artistic influences stem from surrealist artists such as Dali, Magritte, and the organic style of art nouveau. My emphasis in college was clay where I learned and experimented with clay and glaze techniques and recipes. After college I quickly abandoned traditional firing techniques in place of a more primitive alternative pit firing. Much like with my paintings, I use the idea of leaving a fingerprint in time; a fossil. I fire organic material to “paint” a carbon image directly onto the clay’s surface.

My current style is largely influenced by artist, Ben Mahmoud, and his large acrylic paintings, specifically “The Retrospective”. Recurring themes in my work are items that are decayed or are associated with decay, icons of time, and viewing windows to show a moment in that particular time and space. I use recycled materials such as paint, newspaper, house siding, bones, and other organic material in most of my pottery, paintings, and jewelry. I recycle materials to add to an idea of items having a previous life, and being repurposed. I also utilize shadow boxes, focal points, and linear perspective to help guide what my work is trying to communicate to the viewer. I am interested in art that subtly tells a story using lighting, focal points, and or composition. I hope to continue experimenting with different mediums, and using my work to communicate with an ever changing society.
