I am a multidisciplinary artist living with my wife Maggie and young son Cedar in St. Petersburg, FL and at our family land “The Floating Woods” in rural Gulf Hammock, FL. I have been active in the Tampa Bay area art community as a professional artist, curator, and preparator for 20 years.
As a Florida native who spent much of my childhood outdoors, I maintain a deep connection to and a growing concern for our state’s unique natural environment. To create my artwork I actively seek, collect, and re-contextualize, overlooked, organic phenomena and discarded man-made artifacts (waste) which in turn serve as inspiration or raw materials for a wide range of ecologically focused projects that seek to regenerate our lost connection to the natural world around us. This cross-discipline practice is dually driven by insatiable curiosity and earnest concern – revealing what is being lost while reveling in the wonder and mystery of what remains.
