I graduated from Herron School of Art and Design in 2011 with a Bachelors in Fine Art with an emphasis in Drawing, a Bachelors in Art Education, and a minor in Art History. I have experience working in a variety of media ranging from oil paint, watercolor, acrylic, encaustic, printmaking, woodcut, and collage, darkroom photography, digital photography and digital alteration and creation with programs like Photoshop. I teach art by day at Greenfield-Central High School and paint by night.
My work mostly consist of acrylic paintings on canvas, although I also create installations.
My paintings start by being carefully planning their compositions. Once I have one that I am excited to paint, I grid the image and build a canvas to scale. Slowly, I paint the image onto a gridded canvas.
My installations are created with the paint leftover at the end of each painting session. I hate to waste it so I create a method of recycling it that builds slowly over time.
I am also fascinated by the process of transformation. I like to take images of my paintings periodically and put them together on a slide show. At the bottom of each artworks page on this website you will find a slideshow of the painting or installations creation.
I am really interested in historical artwork, architecture, and feminism so they tend to end up in my work.
Feel free to contact me for a commission piece. If you have a photo or idea you would like to start with, I would be happy to paint it.
Painting a Mural for Prologis February 13-20. I will be live-streaming it here. It is based on a design for my Speedway, 1909 painting that I made for the Welcome Race Fans event organized by the Indianapolis Arts Council.
I also live-stream painting most evenings at the same link listed above.
Typically the cost of materials to start, and a contract that states the an hourly wage of $15 and the minimum to maximum amount of hours estimate needed to complete the painting.
