Shelter – With Swoon

  The Tallahassee Leon County Shelter In 2011, Callie Currie (aka SWOON) came to Tallahassee as a visiting scholar and lecturer through FSU, with the added intent of completing a community-based project. We were fortunate enough to be able to assist in a very direct way along with other MFA candidates as part of this […]

Bang On It

Visitors to the gallery were encouraged to take up stick and join in a continual rhythmic experience by banging on a variety of ramshackle, handmade and found percussive instruments. This was a translation of an experience the art team had after a long afternoon together. Even we were surprised by the beauty of the sounds […]

Free Uteri

With all of my work, no matter the media the effect that I hope for is to spark a discussion around ecological and social issues. I aspire to raise the collective consciousness and encourage positive change. With duct tape chastity belts and with our mouths taped shut we joined the rally against a political bill […]

Pollen Slides

I came across a good deal of microscope slides and spent a summer with a book called “Pollen from Canadian Honey Bees” while homesick for Ontario while living in Florida. The book was filled with detailed photographs taken with a microscope to help farmers understand what flowers their bees had been visiting. Art has been […]

Kudzu Cookbook

Kudzu, has been a popular food in Japan and China for thousands of years. The three parts of the kudzu plant that are edible are the: Young leaves and vine tips, Flower blossoms, and Roots. However, it’s the tuberous roots that offer this plant’s real premium. These roots are dehydrated and pulverized, and it is this […]

Kudzu – Installation

In the studio the 5 x 30 foot roll was installed on 2 dowels so that I may work on it 6 feet at a time. Everything was covered in a fine layer of black dust! My reference material stapled to the wall on either side. I spent more time considering “what next” than drawing […]

Shortlisted finalist for a major public art installation!

Shortlisted finalist for a major public art installation in Hamilton for Battlefield Park to commemorate the battle there during the war of 1812. Designed in 2012. “My installation creates a space that will immerse viewers in an audio and experiential simulation of the event, a narrative of the battle itself, casting them in the role […]

Motor Oil

I paint with used motor oil that would normally be discarded. This material is toxic and has none of the archaival qualities of artists materials. A painting on paper fades and disappears in a short few months. There is a parallel between the disappearing painting and the fact that this resource is limited and unsustainable. […]

Shirt off your back

The photo above is from a performance called Shirt Off Your Back that AnalogAnalogue performed in Miami Florida in 2011. We screenprinted a small selection of designs onto anything the viewers wanted, passed it to be blown dry, then to another member to be ironed in a “factory line” style. Collaborations between artists and also […]

Deep Water Horizon

These “vials of sadness” as one viewer aptly named them were installed in a vending machine during an art crawl. April 20th marks the anniversary of the Deep Water Horizon oil catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. Heidi Haire and I fabricated “souvenirs” to be purchased from a vending machine by the gallery goers for […]


My first 30 foot drawing.

Solitary bee

There are a great many types of bees. The particular bee in this painting is called a solitary bee and has a green furry back. She and her kind place their young in hollow reeds. They create a wax next inside, fill it with honey and larvae, cap it off and place another on top. […]


Litterscape was a one time collaborative, viewer-interactive temporary installation with artists Heidi Haire, Jeffrey Hemming, and Johnson Hunt. On Friday, April 2nd 2010, gallery goers were invited to embellish murals of Florida landscape beach scenes with their choice of refuse. The artists collected litter and organized it by color onto the shape of a “painter’s […]

Urban Socio-Archaeology

Using the materials and methods familiar to Archaeologists we surveyed the Urban landscape for clues into the lives of those who made an impact on a particular site. Rather than unearthing/discovering artifacts from the ancient past, we discover artifacts from the recent past, weeks, days, or often only hours previous to our arrival. We have […]


I was living in Florida and looking for an orange as a model for another painting. I couldn’t find a FL orange! This is a painting of 3 oranges, one from Peru, another Australia and the third from Argentina… None even from California. This painting is for the locavores out there.  

We Are The Storm

Oil on Canvas 3 x 4′ The inspiration for this work comes from industrial processes. Raw materials are dug out of the earth and smoke stacks send altered particles that have lived underground for millennia into the sky. This mixing-bowl approach to the elements, landscape and atmosphere drives our technological advancements. We have become so […]

CCD *the bees are dying

Medium: Oil on Canvas Dimensions: 40” x  30” Date: 2008 Researchers are not sure exactly what is causing the decline of the bumble bee and colony collapse disorder (CCD). Pesticide use on crops is the prime suspect. This painting features a crop duster spewing the poison onto the fruits and vegetables, nuts, berries, and seeds […]

Older work (2000-2009)

This mixed media painting was made after visiting Cuba in 2008. I took a photo down a busy alley while staying with my parents who live full-time on a sailboat. 2009
