While living in northeast Kansas in the early 1970s, I was asked to build a doll house as a project for Cub Scouts. Instead, I built what I told my parents was a museum of modern art. A childhood obsession with the formed concrete of Kivett & Myers' Kansas City International Airport influenced the plywood building's design. Informed by family outings to the contemporary collection at the Nelson-Atkins, I crafted the museum's miniature abstract paintings and tiny metal sculptures.
Since moving to San Francisco in the early 1990s, I have been using acrylics, enamels, metal leaf & paper to make pictures on glass and wood panel.
My work can be found in private collections in Alaska, California, Hawaii, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon and Washington DC, as well as in France, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
A recent work, Sixth Square of Squares, was placed by acquired by Capital One, by art consultant and curator Heidi McBride. The piece is part of the Capital One corporate collection. Part of a series, Sixth Square of Squares is currently installed at Capital One's Digital Lab in San Francisco CA.
