When I saw the call for entries for a show at New Editions Gallery in Lexington I couldn’t help but get excited…a lot of great artists in Louisville show their work there.  Some artists I know personally and some I do not…but all whom I admire…among that list are Teri Dryden, Joyce Garner, Cheryl Chapman and Joshua Jenkins.  When I saw the show was only asking for work sized 12″ x 12″, I was convinced it was directed right at me.  There’s something about the square shape that I simply resonate with and I have been making work that is both square and specifically sized 12″ x 12″ for years!

Upcoming Exhibition: Firmly Rooted 2016 in Lexington, KY

New (found) Harmony

Excited to announce that New (found) Harmonyfrom my recent series Attempting Utopia, was selected for the upcoming  Firmly Rooted 2016 exhibition at M.S. Rezny Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky!!  Over 290 artworks were submitted in this national call for art that ‘addresses our ongoing symbiotic relationship with plants’.  Juror Stuart Horodner, Director of the University of Kentucky Art Museum, selected 29 artworks for the exhibit.



The exhibition dates of Firmly Rooted 2016 are July 12th – August 20th with an Artists Reception and Awards Ceremony on Friday, July 15th, 5-8pm.  Stop by the gallery and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award.

Fun Fact!  I was also a selected artist in the Firmly Rooted 2012 Exhibition.   The Lexington Herald Leader did an article on the show and featured my work as well.  Check it out!


Attempting Utopia is a series of macroscopically photographed plant life in early stages of conception. Captured entirely in my back yard, these images, both beautiful and alien, parallel my experiences in starting anew.  I abstract the bright future idea by exponentially enlarging the images and dye sub printing onto aluminum, which radiates a shininess affiliated with success.  Images are frameless and float off the wall, constantly changing with the light as you move around them, representing the inevitable.  Titles in the series reference real and fictionalized utopian/dystopian societies.  (Shout out to Unique Imaging Concepts who printed the work…they are awesome!)

See you in Lexington!
