I am a designer and artist with a creative heart. I have the funny kind of mind that takes unusual paths through the creative process. I jump between artistic media and love the unique. I am an interior designer and I am just finishing the interior at the Double Barley Brewery and the Twisted Lemonade in New York.
I create metal art with a flame and use different patinas to create my art . I work in mixed media such as, acrylics, inks and whatever comes to hand. I often will create a design in one style then when I create another design in a completely different direction,
I have showcased my art in North Carolina at local venues: Double Barley Brewery, Clayton Steak House, Skylines Cafe, Christmas in Clayton, Taste of Johnston County. 2013 awarded 3rd place, Clayton Visual Art - Awarded Honorable Mention 2008, Clayton Wagner House - Group Show, Bristol on Third. Las Vegas Nevada group show at The Falls. I am looking forward to branching out and spending more time in my studio and creating more beautiful and interesting art.
I love the function and form of design. Using material from an old barn or industrial piece in a design these twist are particularly close to my heart, as well as the charm of the french country and modern contemporary. I love all design and see the beauty in all projects. As in all my creative areas sustainability and value engineering is an important part of my process.
I have over 25 years experience in construction and bring my experience and passion for design to every project. I enjoy my art and hope you will enjoy my design and all aspects of my creations.
