Wands WIP 15

2016 :: April batch of wands-in-progress

These are found branches that are in-process of becoming wands. Compare to the ruler for length of each. As of the time of this posting, all of the wands are seeking a home and may be further customized.

Wands WIP 12

2016 :: wand-in-progress

This holly tree branch segment was a pleasant surprise upon my return home today, just waiting to be found and become a focus or wand. Left/right or front/back view. My hand comfortably fits along the sanded section in the middle of the branch, before the bend. As of the time of this posting, this wand is seeking a home and may be further customized.

Journal History

As an artist, I create compositions that are essentially transitory. Much of my work is inspired by diverse visual and tactile cues -- angles, patterns, shapes, texture -- especially those found in nature. My process is often spontaneous, beginning with a simple idea or aesthetic -- balance, color, repetition, scale -- then allowing the environment and materials to guide me through to completion.

The completed works are never truly finished, as they progress through changes over time. I draw fulfillment from creating eco-friendly graffiti where I travel, leaving my mark in the form of earthworks and land art, using natural or easily biodegradable materials. Most of my compositions are intended to decay over time and return to nature. Some works are intended to endure longer by transitioning to be displayed apart from nature, in a more museum-like setting; even this is temporary, and the work will find its way back to nature.

An integral component of my compositions relies upon how the forms are translated by human interaction. I collect natural and found objects for later compositions, either moving them from one setting in nature to another, or completely removing the element from nature for an indeterminable duration. I work with the mixed media utilizing assemblage techniques for physical compositions. The completed works are either presented to others to observe or happen upon in nature. The compositions are intended to be experienced and even changed by the human condition.

Additional note: This statement applies primarily to my installations and land art works.

Education

I attended Baltimore School For the Arts for High School, where I studied Visual Arts. After graduating in 1995 I attended Frostburg State University, where I continued my studies in Fine Art. I first concentrated in Ceramics, but after a three year break from college I refocused my studies to Photography and Sculpture, adding an Art History Minor to the mix. I graduated with my BFA in 2004. Later, I returned to Frostburg and earned a Masters of Education in 2007; my studies concentrated on art installations, museum governance, and education.

Wyldewood Studios

After moving to Hyattsville, Maryland, I formed my freelance art studio entitled Wyldewood Studios. Compositions include, though are not limited to, earthwork/land art sculptures, mixed media installations, natural material decorations and functional objects.

Personal Quote: "Never apologize for your art!"
