Art is my preferred method of communication–all the while I do not behold solely to a particular medium. In humbleness I am willing to grow and let experiances and newly gleamed wisdom speak through me. I elect materials best suited for each idea and experiment with new mediums in communion with my core mediums that include electronic imaging, sound recordings, arranging found and created objects to create new visual symbolism. In the mode of sculpture I reassign and invent meaning through connections I make through the placement of objects, in imagery I photograph through my camera and orchestrate the images into series and large format montages for public and private spaces. My work finds an appropriate installation space within the museum and gallery setting, but it is in the forest where I regenerate my ideas before making new art in my studio within the city of Memphis, TN. Holding fast to the simple way a child builds a snowman or an experimenter makes art in new fascination is an important guiding force to my visual language and artistic répertoire.
