about the artist

I am a fifth-generation Texan and full time Dallas-based site-specific sculptor, painter, poet, writer, muralist, percussionist and artist’s advocate. I have owned and operated two galleries in my life as well as a boutique design firm.

I now operate a busy fine art studio where I continue to create paintings, murals, sculptures, design work, drawings and other site-specific installations - writing poetry and making photographs in my spare time.

I was instrumental in developing artist's programs for the artist residency, La Reunion TX, where you can see two of my installations and a chainsaw-cut bench sitting on the 35+ acres of property near the Oak Cliff/Cockrell Hill border. 

In 2009, I was also responsible for the ideation behind the visual color transformation of the West Dallas industrial neighborhood on Singleton blvd. at the base of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge designed by Spanish sculptor/architect, Santiago Calatrava. 

I currently serve on the board and chair the Public Art Committee for the Ft. Worth Avenue Development Group - a 501(c)[3] organization of volunteers from - or have interests in - the neighboring community that are interested in developing existing businesses and bringing new business and residents to the West Dallas/Ft. Worth Avenue corridor. 

Having served as the both the curator & artist liaison for the underground artist-run musical and visual art showcase, Art Conspiracy, also a 501(c)[3] - for the 2009 & 2010 years, I am an avid supporter of local artists' empowerment and opportunities. On occasion, I donate works of art to select charities, as well.

My  sculptures and paintings have been seen and sold in many galleries and institutions in the north texas region from the Mary Karam Gallery in Denison, TX - to the Dallas Contemporary, The Public Trust, Rising Gallery, Art-Centric Gallery, Kirk Hopper Fine Art, The McKinney Avenue Contemporary (MAC), Ro2 Galleries, The American Airlines Center, Kettle Art Gallery and the Gallery at Midtown.

Currently, I operate a busy  production art studio at the Gallery at Midtown at The Valley View Center at Dallas Midtown and most recently designed a limited edition set of totes and handbags as part of the 10th Anniversary Artist's Series set of handbags with Cykochik®.

I also create many custom-commissioned pieces for the hospitality industry through Art Centric art consulting and accept commissions from the general public on a case-by-case scenario. I do not do spec work. Feel free to send me an e-mail (see below) for any questions on rates and availability.
