My life is one that is divided between being an academic at the University of Texas, Arlington, and pursuing life as an artist.
Currently I work primarily as a painter, using watercolor or alcohol ink and resin; although recently I have been learning to metalsmith. As a painter, I work to create a balance between the beauty of detail and the looseness of abstraction. The play between control and freedom, along with a strong sense of color and design are the elements that make for strong visual impact and that bring more beauty to the world.
