|Occupation||Mixed media and collage Artist|
|Location||Roanoke, Virginia, United States|
|Introduction||An eclectic eye and lots and lots of looking inform both my figurative and my abstract work. Key to my collages and paintings is a physical, often percussive rhythm, fluid line, and a delight in color. I also love visual saturation—I strive to give my viewers so much to see in any one piece that they must take it in gradually, over time. I owe my questing, freewheeling approach largely to Early Modernist such as Paul Klee and to medieval poets-especially to Chaucer and his 14th-century contemporary, the Gawain-poet--and to a host of mostly anonymous medieval artists who loved nothing better than to insert into the recesses of sacred structures and texts the awkward monster, the ribald pun, and the homely but telling detail. Beware the cat stalking the sparrow under a bed. In my hometown, Roanoke, VA, I show at The Market Gallery (540/342-1177). If you want more information about a piece, or want to see a wider range of my work, email me over the net at firstname.lastname@example.org.|

None. Not even my flat backyard is flat.
