Thanks to everyone who came out for WEST. I had a great time talking with a wide variety of interesting, thoughtful visitors. I was also delighted to be mentioned in this interesting article about WEST.



Thanks to everyone who came out to Break it Down last month; I was happy to have been involved in such a lovely little show with such talented people.

My work will be on view in a couple different places in the upcoming weeks and months. First, my work can be found at the Moody Gallery booth at the Dallas Art Fair in April. I’m also happy to announce that I will be opening my studio for the second annual West Austin Studio Tour for two weekends in late April and early May. The talented Cecelia Phillips-Evans will be showing at the same location.

Finally, I’ll be at the Hunting Prize gala again this year on May 4th.


Several months have quickly come and gone, and the two-person drawing show at amoa-arthouse closes this weekend. If you haven’t seen shapeshifting, it will be on view through Sunday, February 17th.

In other news, art night austin is upon us again, and a selection of my works will be on view in a temporary space curated by Sonia Dutton in downtown Austin. The group show will be viewable Wednesday through Sunday this week, 11am-6pm; the space is easy to find at the corner of San Antonio and Cesar Chavez. And of course, the show will be on view for Art Night Austin on Saturday, February 23rd.


The east austin studio tour is coming up. Join the hundreds (thousands?) of art pilgrims wandering the east side from November 8-18. I will be participating in the group show On the Double organized for the tour by Dutton Gallery, as well as the massive log jam show of over 200 E.A.S.T. participants.


If you’re in Houston this weekend, some of my drawings can be found at the moody gallery and Dutton Gallery booths at the second annual texas contemporary art fair.


I am flattered to have received two lovely reviews of my show (still up at moody gallery through August 18th). It was a pleasure to get to know Meredith Deliso at the opening, who wrote this review. And also check out this review by Todd Camplin at


I am delighted to announce my first solo show with moody gallery in Houston this summer. It’s a beautiful space and I’m looking forward to a great looking show. The opening is July 14th, and the show will be up for a month.

Also, I will be participating in the first annual west austin studio tour this year. It takes place on Saturday and Sunday, May 19th and 20th. Please come out; my studio is located at number 155 on the W.E.S.T. map.


Several of my works will be shown at Champion Contemporary for art night austin on February 25th.
