I am devoted to the idea that abstraction is the authentic outcome of making art.  I examine edges, boundaries, gravity, magnetism, surface, tactility, trying to find the accumulation of observations that constitutes an image.

For the past five years, I have found work curating art exhibitions, doing the administrative and practical work of running academic art galleries.  I served as an interim manager at the University of Dallas’s Beatrice M. Haggerty Art Gallery, in Irving, and currently as the first full-time Art Gallery Director for Cedar Valley College. At Cedar Valley College, I select the exhibitors, the artwork and design all the exhibitions for both the larger Educational Art Gallery and also for a smaller exhibition space that focuses on fine art printmaking

Join us for an interactive demo of Alcohol Inks Jan. 14 in DeSoto

01643239ea36d1782a2188667c44f301185a7dd16b

The DeSoto Art League meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month beginning at 2:00 PM and ending at 4 PM at the DeSoto Presbyterian Church at 212 W. Pleasant Run Rd. in DeSoto. Light refreshments provided.

On January 14th, 2017 the Art League will present painting with Alcohol Inks. There are several techniques that will be presented by Julie Danford and Jean Wiley. The inks are quite vivid and are unusual in that they can be applied to non-porous surfaces. This interactive demonstration will have you try the methods on photographic paper and ceramic tile. You will also learn how to make the inks yourself so you can add this technique to your artist’s palette. Consider yourself invited—as a member, or as a guest!
