studio shot

The large tumbleweed like form is assembled using something I am calling a junction. All of the branch like shapes can screw into the connector in the center. I was trying to make them less independent of the wall.

Snakerun- on view at the Mahan Gallery

This project which I decided to title snakerun [a skateboarding reference] has been a work in progress for a couple of years now. A twisted, zig-zagging,ditch like terrain leads to hours of freedom on four wheels.
The Timber Rattlesnake is a fascinating creature, only native to North America. The slogan " Don't tread on me " was inspired by this snake during the revolutionary war. A predator which dwells within impenetrable rock will only strike in vengeance only if stepped upon.

This collection will be on display through the month of December 2007 at the Mahan Gallery, in Columbus Ohio. The show titled, White Light White Heat, in reference to the Velvet Underground album exhibits how artists use whiteness in there work.

Renegade Craft Fair, Chicago

We came to Chicago prepared for a good show, but I was shocked at the amount of traffic. It seemed like thousands of people were packing into these booths. Sales were great and so was the feedback, but I mostly enjoy meeting other artists and talking about the work. Katie and I came back to Columbus exhausted, but it was well worth the experience.
