Fine Artist in Virginia
Sculpture • Paintings
My work is mainly figurative, but also abstract. The medium presently is clay with patina. Mixed medium includes wire and wood.
Acrylic on canvas or paper; mainly non-objective but harken to landscape scenes, sizes range from 8 x 8 inches to 30 x 40 inches.
Ancient Japanese method of firing, these pieces have unexpected color. They are wall sculptures, vessels, animals. The drama of the black background is from the smoking of the combustibles in the firing process.
Although I am not producing functional ware as much, there are some platters, bowls, and other occasional pieces. Call me to inquire if interested.
Art Show Through Summer 2018
I am exhibiting 7 sculptures along with 20 artists in this show in Bethesda, MD. SR/A Interior Design, 7020 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda, MD. Open to the public! Two outdoor public parking lots are across Wisconsin Ave. on Leland St. Website: srainteriordesign.com/new-exhibit-at-la-collection. Also the ‘About’ page has a nice video of the space and the design firm. The store is an airy space filled with a beautiful blending of contemporary furnishings and antique finds; along with original art. Unlike typical art galleries, SR/A believes art displays best as it would in a person’s home – surrounded by furniture, accessories and antique treasures, so at the gallery you will see each artist’s collection paired with complimentary furnishings. Exhibiting now through Summer!
