Indy Photo

I have been taking photos for a long time and have been experimenting with abstraction in photography. I have started a journal ( ) of these photos and I am finding inspiration for paintings and new approaches to painting. I eventually would like to do a series bringing these two mediums together. I am working on this and am so inspired by the textures and patterns I am finding. I have a urban series based on my life in Atlanta. The other main series is the Pleasant Plain series. This series is from the place I grew up in and come back to often. It's my roots and has a lot of meaning to me. More and more I am drawn back. I named this project after my trusty studio mate of almost 15 yrs and long time canine companion.

Some New Work

It's been a while since my last post. I hope to be posting soon some new shows around Atlanta soon. There is a lot of good shows happening in this hot hot summer! This summer is flying by and I am trying to catch up!
I have been working on some new series and this is one of the pieces. This is 16x16 acrylic on panel...I am taking this idea to a larger format-48x48. I am working in lots of layers and scraping, covering, and re-scraping to expose colors underneath. This is "Dot" 2010 acrylic on wood panel.
