Events and News:

I am very excited and honored to announce that my work will be featured this year at Dallas Aurora - Future Worlds. AURORA is an expansive free public art event that transforms Downtown Dallas into an open-air, urban playground of new media art that is not to be missed. With installations of light, video and sound presented in unexpected places, the sunset signals the transformation of the city into one of the nation’s largest outdoor exhibitions. Here you will find all the information you need regarding dates and locations. My installation titled The Velocity of Light at the Perot Museum will run from November 3, 2018 - January 6, 2019. It is located on the third floor of the museum within the Lyda Hill Gems and Minerals Hall. I will also be joining Kimberly Vagner, gemologist at the Perot Museum, on Saturday, December 8, 2018, 9am - noon for a Day in The Life of a Gemologist and Artist.

Looking forward to another great event at this year's Art for Advocacy benefiting the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center. Saturday, November 10, 2018. Please follow link for more information. The work this charity does for abused children is so very needed and important.
