Thank you for visiting.
I am an artist that stays busy making art, integrating the whole of my life and using every aspect as a material resource. I create paintings, series, installations, and projects that are long-term, far-reaching, socially and environmentally charged, and often seeking participation. I work extremely slowly, responding thoughtfully. My life goal is to connect all that I've pursued into a final artwork that expresses my philosophical approach to life and my personal cosmology.
All funds collected are used solely for my studio practice and used to complete my projects.

A FEW DETAILS FOR COLLECTING MY ART AND SUPPORTING MY CREATIVE IDEAS
Items are listed for varying durations, as I sift through my archive and create space. Early work and new formats of both limited and open editions appear among originals and one-of-a kind artwork. Some work is of manageable size and easily accessible online with a click of a button. My available paintings on canvas are seen online but not sold online. Paintings require a more intimate process due to the scale. Please email if you wish to inquire further.
My prices vary depending on the item that I am parting with. Some works have a concrete value, which I must maintain to honor all previous collectors. Some items are produced specifically for accessibility and fundraising efforts.
All online transactions include appropriate tax and shipping within the US, unless stated. The online payment platform, Paypal, is used for ease and security. Our membership, Leeway Room, has been active since the 1990s.
If you wish to have a selected work framed, whether a painting or work on paper, it is attainable. Custom frames are offered in a variety of styles, woods, and finishes at additional cost. Art Services Chicago, a family-run operation, provides professional services.
Each work will come with authentication, detailing the nature of the work with dates and visuals, which are placed neatly in a folder.
Items are packaged at a thoughtful pace and shipped within a week to three weeks, depending on the work selected. It must be noted that some of the art is held in storage or, in some cases printed to order, and requires time. Collectors are kept notified of the process.
Artwork is packed securely, and depending on the item, can be shipped flat, rolled, boxed or crated with a variety of protection like glassine, waterproofing, and padded elements. Tracking and insurance are used for good measure. Transport providers range from Fedex and UPS to United States Postal Service First Class and Priority Mail for both domestic and international shipping.
I will use your paypal mailing address unless otherwise instructed. If a title is a part of your selection please use the paypal message box for all extra information. I do send gifts, keeping the invoice concealed and packing the artwork with care and flare at no extra cost.
It is expected that all transactions are certain and carefully considered. Returns are not granted, but exchanges are accepted within two weeks of the shipping date.
Please Email my studio with any questions that you may have.
Fundraising efforts are to assist with two global artworks that include project-based educational components. The Demandments assignment and the World Rivers project involve teachers and learners in knowledge construction and meaning-making action. Please help me pursue my dream of an artistic curricular influence that draws attention to global imperatives for human justice and environmental stewardship.
Paintings, project art, and installation items from the early 1990s to current, are available for collecting.
Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)(3) public charity, provides fiscal sponsorship for my public art assignment The Demandments. Tax-deductible donations help with outreach, methods to connect with both teachers and students, and collecting the demands of children to showcase publicly.
I wish to sincerely offer praise to everyone that genuinely shares their enthusiasm in supporting my work, both monetary arrangements and words of encouragement are instrumental in achieving my creative vision.
