I like working big ...
When I was 5, I drew life-sized nudes
of a man and a woman on the front porch in crayon.
Now I create large wall reliefs out of wood and whatever
I happen to dream up. Numerous overlapping shapes in
vibrant color, that connect, are put together
like a giant puzzle.
Most of my art is commissioned, and designed to meet a
particular set of parameters. The work can tell a great story
about where it is placed. I enjoy the challenge of invention,
and filling a space with something meaningful - for a
community, a corporation, or a private home. Please see
project descriptions on my site at codaworx.com.
Although I now live in the sunshine state, I grew up in the
midwest. I studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, earning
many scholarships and awards. Upon graduating, I received
a Wilder Fellowship; traveled in Europe for 6 months,
with a show of photographs when I returned.
Currently, my main concentration has been the experience
of creating public art projects installed as the result of
national competitions, through the Percent for Art Program.
I have won 14 of these, along with numerous corporate
and private commissions.
In my spare time, I work on a series of wall reliefs I call
dimensional mosaics. My shimmering opalescent
glass wave "Convergence" moves constantly
in the available light.
Stay tuned, lots more to come.
