My newest body of work, this series combines my love of creative photography with my obsession of bold color...with my glass obscured as the background.
This body of work has been shown at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France, in Italy, Helsinki, Tokyo and is a part of Eastern Kentucky University's permanent art and on display at its John Grant Crabbe Main Library.
It is, in part, my modern-day ode to the Western Kentucky painter Ellis Wilson and
allows me another alternative to explore my fascination with color.
I paint in milk, as opposed to on a canvas, and the final result is temporary - captured with my camera before completely dissipating - which serves to remind me that a thing isn't beautiful because it lasts forever.
My first attempt at creating something with my own hands.
I learned about glass initially by making glass jewelry pieces - pendants, bracelets and necklaces - from Laura Hallock.
I make glass jewelry pieces to this day to honor her as well as the legacy of the late Sam Maloof, a furniture maker that I have long admired for his dedication, his longevity and his commitment to his craft.
