As a Hurst resident, finding opportunities to present my art locally to my neighbors is a rare occurrence. So I’m pleased to announce that my award-winning photography will be featured in my first ever solo exhibition “Life in Frame” inside the Hurst Public Library’s gallery. The free art exhibition will be on view during the library’s regular business hours from November 2nd through November 29th. [Please check with the library directly for any changes in their hours around the Thanksgiving holiday].
I’ve created a public Facebook Event so you can share across social media, as well as mark your FB calendar as interested or going with all the relevant details:
I’m pleased to announce that some of my photographic work (selections from my long exposure carnival ride series) will be on display in the “100 For 100” Exhibition at Fort Works Art Gallery located at 2100 Montgomery Street in Fort Worth, Texas.

Tickets to the Opening Day reception party (Oct. 27 from noon to 9pm) will be $10, with all proceeds going toward the non-profit organization Gallery Of Dreams to support future exhibition opportunities and events for local artists. The remaining days of the exhibition are free and open to the public to view during normal gallery hours.

Unfortunately for me, I will not be at the Artist Reception on April 21st, since it happens to coincide with my appearance at the Main ST Fort Worth Arts Festival. But many of the other artists will be on hand to talk about their art and process, plus there’s free refreshments too.So if you’re not visiting me at my booth in Fort Worth, then I’d recommend you pop in for an evening of art!
I’m incredibly thrilled to announce that I have been named an emerging artist for this year’s Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival, which will be held April 19-22, 2018 in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival is one of the top three juried Fine Arts Festivals in the United States, which uses a five-member panel of art professionals to make their selections. They had 1282 artists apply from around the world. While 223 artists were invited to participate, their emerging artist category is specifically used to help spotlight new and emerging Texas artists. To be included in this group of 20 artists across a range of media including photography, painting, sculpture, and jewelry is a tremendous honor. There’s only a very limited part of a career where an artist can be eligible for this category, and this was in all likelihood the only time I would ever by eligible for this wonderful opportunity that will have long-lasting repercussions for my career. To say that I’m ecstatic, is an understatement.
So please save the following dates: April 19-22, 2018 and come out and support all of the amazingly-talented artists specially selected to this year’s festival. I’ll look forward to you visiting me at Booth #351 (near the intersection of 3rd Street & Main Street).
