I am a local Houston Artist, living in the Cypress area, working in Mixed Media, Collage, Paint and Encaustic. Meditation is in the process of my work and the product encourages the viewer to be in the present moment. I explore narratives through symbols and archetypes, like nature, birds, flowers, mandalas. 
Abstracted color and natural forms are overlaid with text, collage material and encaustic wax painting. 

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves the use of heated beeswax to which colored pigments and damar resin are added. I utilize encaustic in my mixed media pieces, both for it's translucent affects and for it's adhesive and archival qualities. 

This approach to working in mixed media lends itself to creating a visceral world made with multiple layers, an approach that imbues the work with meaning.  

When I'm not working in Mixed Media; my other preferred Media is Watercolor. The unpredictability of the watercolor works well with the minds free associations. My watercolor abstractions are like ocean waves dark with psychological depth and ephemeral like the existence of a wave. I long to capture that quiet beauty found in nature, and amplify the spiritual connection it so reflects.

2017 WILLIAM H. JOHNSON PRIZE

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2017, 6P 

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre. 

The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African American artist. For our purposes, "early-career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that a prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2005 is eligible to apply in 2017, but not in 2018. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as a professional artist for more than twelve years. 

The 2017 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2017. 

APPLYING FOR THE 2017 JOHNSON PRIZE
