I am a mixed media artist from Detroit, MI, now living and working in Pittsburgh, PA. One of the recurring themes of my current work explores the comparisons and contrasts of these two industrial cities, with special interest given to landscape differences, social climate, times of economic hardship, and each city's response to these challenges. A variety of artistic media is used to create my work such as screen printing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, drawing, writing, and more. Often times a number of these mediums find their way into one project. I am constantly inspired by specific locations, buildings, and landscape details, and find great pleasure in determining which form of artistic media accurately depicts the feeling of interest, mood, or inspiration that was evoked within me. It is my hope that each finished piece stimulates dialogue amongst viewers that transcends the artwork and enters the realm of social conciousness, inspires a renewed sense of appreciation of things around us, and encourages creativity in others.
