Lately I’ve been using self-portraiture in a variety of media to attempt to answer the question, “Who Am I?” My method is to create visual mechanisms for clarity, and courage. I’ve exhibited widely across the Unites States, with about twenty-five solo shows since obtaining my MFA in Drawing and Painting in 1997 from Georgia State University. Some of these venues are Ruby Green Gallery in Nashville, TN, Hallwalls in Buffalo, NY, The Schwartz Center for Performing Arts at Emory University, the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Soho 20 in Chelsea, NYC, Gal and Ruth Bachofner Gallery, Los Angeles. Locally I’ve exhibited at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital, Studio Place Arts in Barre VT, AVA in Lebanon NH, The Chaffee Art Center in Rutland VT, The Chandler Center for the Arts, Randolph, VT and the Gilmore Gallery in Peacham, VT. I’ve been a gallery curator, visiting artist, guest college lecturer, performance artist, community artistic project director, teacher and graphic producer. I’ve held numerous residencies and been the recipient of several grants to produce artistic projects, particularly for The Hand to Hand Project, an expansive collaborative work incorporating eight years of daily artistic commentary on the Iraq War, with 2,000 artworks by 195 national artists at fifteen venues coast to coast. I live and create in Peacham, Vermont.
