Public Art Practice

The focus of my public art is defining the site with a cultural and historical reference that resonates with the local community. The concepts of Creative Placemaking are integral to my work. Two public art projects have received a Las Vegas Mayor’s Urban Design Awards for Public Art. The first award was in 2008.  I was a design team member with Dayo Adelaja, Sylvester Collier and Adolfo R. Gonzalez for the sculpture "Ancestral Gateway." The second award was in 2011 for "Flourish", a cultural urban trail consisting of twelve sidewalk enhancements along the Cultural Corridor. I have completed 9 public art projects to date.

Rhythm and Hues

Continued Artist Statement: "It uses an energetic palette with diverse rhythmic waves of color referencing the vibrancy of movement and music with a fluid visual composition. The mural’s shape alludes to the musical symbol the Crochet or quarter rest. The punctuated pause in music, drama, comedy, writing or visual art, allows us to savor the exquisite, feel the emotion, sense a transition, set the pace or take a moment to simply breathe.”
