"Mister Quint", 2014, mixed media on fiberboard. The background is built up with glue and paint on an MDF panel, then the objects -- leaves, doll's heads, a paper cutout, fabric, broken glass, paper -- are glued onto the surface and painted. The panel is framed in a "box" style frame with a half-centimeter gap all the way around the panel, separating it from the frame. The title is based on the character of Peter Quint, the sinister ghost in Henry James' short novel "The Turn of the Screw".

Born in Montgomery, Alabama, and raised in the rural Appalachian foothills of the northeastern part of the state, my childhood was surrounded by the natural world, the rigid social and cultural traditions of the deep South, the distant rumblings of 1960's social changes, and the panoramas of human existence revealed to me through reading, music and art. Most of my adult life has been spent working as a graphic designer in Birmingham, South Florida, and Dallas -- primarily in the television industry -- where I was immersed yet another hybrid universe, a fun-house world of ego, transitory celebrity, and social manipulation. These days I live and work in a cabin on the edge of the Ozark National Forest in northwest Arkansas, decompressing.
