Research Summary

Primary creative research: paintings on panel, most adapted from my travel sketchbooks. (Their pages can be read as directing my more formal studio efforts, the paintings.) Now that I have resolved and published my book on Romanesque Burgundy, I have turned my attention to a new body of work, this one a series of paintings and a book, in response to travel in Spain.

Education

  • BFA, Art History, University of Utah
  • MFA, Painting and Drawing, University of Utah. Project: Firework

Ongoing collaboration

Now that the letterpress edition "Stranger and Stranger" has been resolved by Red Butte Press, Katharine Coles and I will begin to discuss with one another ideas for a next project. A reading and artists' talk on our process was hosted by Phillips Gallery last February. Southern Utah University Museum had planned to feature our collaborative work in a Fall, 2020 show, but that exhibition has been postponed due to the COVID crisis.
