Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

About My Work:

In the simplest terms, the vast majority of my artistic output would fall under the category of painting.  However, I find myself very uncomfortable with the term painter.  I am a pourer, a scratcher, a marker, a gouger, a sander of paint.  I don’t paint:  I form concepts in paint.  Ultimately, I consider myself to be an object maker.
