Wall Drawing, 2022, Future Lab[s] Gallery, North Adams, MA
When I first moved to North Adams, I had to make some inroads with the art community. My first contact was with a lady whose installation space was praised by my friend who owns a ceramic art gallery that operates on the MassMoca campus. After she visited my studio early on in my life in…

34 Branch Drawings, 2022
It took a year to determine how to use the thirty-four pictures I took of the drawing below. This drawing was so difficult to do, that is, imitating the image of an 8 x 10 photo of branches, that I took pictures moving across and down the drawing to ensure that I could retain the…

Black Wall Drawing, 2013
At one point, I decided to leave working on paper behind and managed to drop any mistrust of my capacity to draw a coherent statement on the wall. This is one of my first attempts on my studio wall; I painted it out when I decided to do another. The piece is seventy-two inches in…
