The lived experience of learning differences is the primary subject matter for my creative research. As a youth, I attended the Child Study Center for three years, a school in a teaching hospital, where I became intrigued with educational research. I am inspired to create artwork that comment on the history of education and question the prevailing culture which devalue fluencies and skills outside prevailing norms. With my creative practice I am using my abilities to build a long-term creative practice that allows a free and open conversation about education. I am always striving to develop work that precisely combines elements which clearly emphasize the empowerment potential of creating artwork that openly talks about the history of education and the lived experience of learning.
I have a long history of exhibiting my artwork regionally, nationally, and internationally. The latest international exhibition my photographic work was part of is, Art as Message, at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art in Gimpo Korea. My project, To Give a Voice: Portraits of The Visually Impaired Community, were I gathered and preserved firsthand experiences of people that are part of the visually impaired community using photographic portraits, 3D printed reliefs, and oral history recordings has shown in two national exhibitions, one curated by Jennifer Murray, Executive Director of Filter Photo, and the second curated by Russell Lord, Freeman Family Curator of Photographs, Prints, and Drawings at the New Orleans Museum of Art. My installation work has also been shown at the Smithsonian Institute International Gallery in Washington, DC, and at the Terrace Gallery of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. My photographic work has been displayed at the Gilcrease Museum and Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The latest solo exhibition of my photographic work was; View of Educational Structures at Liggett Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I have a Bachelor of Architecture with a Minor in Painting from the University of Arkansas, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing & Photography with a Minor in Art History from The University of Tulsa and a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from The University of Tulsa. I am currently a Fine Art Instructor at North Little Rock High School in Arkansas.
