Artist Statement

The vision for my art starts with my love for the human form. It is my belief that our bodies transform based on our mental and emotional state. I have incorporated our dependence on technology and add a bit of humor. I enjoy experimenting with with my subject matter both threw painting as well as a more 3D medium. I have always in some way, shape or form used dolls in my work, and I'm currently working on a army of cyborg creations. They are part of a graphic novel I've been working for 4 years. A sci-fi story based in New Orleans set in the year 3011. Look for the finished product late 2012.

Artist Bio

I would spend the school year with my Dad in Ocean Springs, MS. and the summers with my Mom in New Orleans. I'm very lucky to have been exposed to this city's art culture during my formative years. I was accepted to Parsons School of Design in New York City. I graduated in '95, with a major in painting, minor in graphic design. After graduation I decided to stay in New York, and found work designing children cloths. I did that for 5 years, then got a great position at the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum, in the photo archive department. In January of 2000 my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. After her passing I decided to call New Orleans home once again. My exhibitions include the following; Organization for Independent Artist, 19 Hudson St, New York, NY Limner Gallery, 870 6th Ave., New York, NY Tufts University Gallery, Aidekman Arts Center, Medford, MA Art-East Gallery Balatonfured, Hungary Gallery Korea, 460 Park Avenue, New York, NY Kilsil Gallery, Budapest, Hungary 3 Ring Circus "The Big Top Gallery", 1638 Clio St. New Orleans, LA
