Bio: I attended Detroit's Cass Tech immersion in art and design. Senior year I took life drawing classes at the Society of Arts and Crafts (now known as the College for Creative Studies). At Wayne State I studied Liberal Arts and split between academics and two and three-dimensional art. Working in drawing and crafts I explored visual perception and technique, manufacturing processes, design history and product presentation. I spent one summer at the Penland School in North Carolina studying metalcrafts, ironwork and glassblowing. At Southern Illinois University at Carbondale I continued studio study, earning an MFA with concentration in Drawing. Returning to Detroit I joined artist organizations and art galleries, producing, designing and installing exhibits. I worked as an illustrator and designer and taught art classes from primary through college levels. Art show skills led to a career in exhibit display and graphics. I currently work in sculpture at the AIM (Art In Motion) studio in Detroit and drawing at the Scarab Club. Statement: Growth, flow, motion and movement suggest struggle. Deliberate forms, geometric, calculated design are planned, evolve and change. The apparent world of the natural object developing by rules of gravity, density, attraction, tension, lightness/darkness, contrast/assimilation, I enjoy the dance with the material world. The imagined world of dimensional space, the constructed illusion of perception and geometry, measurements and volume, I enjoy the play with our world within.
