Summer 2016! Update & Sale

Summer Update

I will be posting studio updates in the coming weeks with images.  My space at The Studios Inc. was cooking this summer.  We produced almost 40 new works, several new series and a large and dramatic commission this summer.  Images of this summers production will be on the site soon.  Here is a new piece!  I’m very excited about where this series is headed.

Mustard Kink, 2016, tile & mixed media

I am very excited to announce my gallery affiliation with Weinberger Fine Arts!  Don’t miss Weinberger Fine Arts this coming 1st Friday, September 2nd and check out the opening for Margaret Evangeline, a fellow Louisiana artist.  I’ll have several pieces in the gallery as well!


Inferno-1, 2006

Inferno, 2006, fried canvas

I’ll be leaving Studios Inc at the end of the year and I am sitting on a stash of older artwork.  I’d love to find a good home for some of these old friends.  I’ll be announcing sales of various older pieces in the coming weeks and months.  Stay tuned!  If there is anything that peaks your interest send me an email,  I haven’t decided the sale platform yet, but you’ll be able to buy the work online and we’ll ship it to you.  Inferno will be available!  Own some certifried art!
