Select Artist Resume

My Mother worked in the industrial Glass industry specializing in Plate and Auto Glass manufacturing. My father was a renowned Stained glass maker and ground breaking glass artist in contemporary Glass Sculptures. As a young boy, until I began showing work on my own, I worked as an apprentice for my father, learning traditional styles of art glass as well as new techniques such as blasting, slumping, lamenting, chipping and fusing.

I began showing work in contemporary art galleries while studying art at the university of louisville and Columbia College in Chicago in the late nineties before graduating from Berea College in 2015. 
By the early 2000's I had a fairly good name for my self  for my sculptures blending glass and photography. I also gained recognition with new form I created using etched glass to project images on the areas around the sculptures by manipulating the shadows. During this time I was the first invited artist in residence at the Guggenheim in Venice Italy, as well as artist in residence for the Bernheim Arboretum, The Brown Hotel, Louisville Free Public Library, as well as others.

The majority of my work is with recycled and re-used glass. Not having much of a budget most of the time, necessity has pushed me to create new and alternative styles using discarded glass in order to be able to make my work.

In 2011 my work was included in Cindy Ann Coldiron's anthology of glass artists called 'Sculpture And Design With Recycled Glass' (Schiffer Publishing LTD).

I have shown in many galleries and museums in louisville including Gallerie Hertz, Swanson and Reed gallery, The Speed Museum, and the Water Tower museum, Zephyr Gallery, as well in New York, and Europe.
For many years I co-curated the alternative art galleries 953 Gallery in louisville Kentucky, and the Asterisk Gallery in Brooklyn New York.
