The More I Build You


The More I Build You exhibit opens Thursday, February 18th, 2016 from 6pm-8pm.  I'd love to see you there!

Where:  Gallery 76102, 1401 Jones Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76102
When:  February 18-March 31, 2016 (Hours: Wed.-Sat. from noon-6pm)

Most of the work was completed in 2014-15 during my first year as a graduate painting candidate at Texas Christian University (go frogs!).  Also included are a few paintings that were done during my time as a fine art post-grad student in New Zealand in 2011 and as an artist-in-residence at The Rensing Center in Pickens, South Carolina in the summer of 2015.  This show holds a special place in my heart, it is a five year journey of my search for the meaning of home.
