How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
Very often
What do you want people to know most about you?
I love to create contemporary mixed media paintings full of mystery. I also enjoy seeing a lot of work online from international artists. Organizing group exhibitions with other innovative artists is an activity I've found to be very rewarding. I served as curator of the 2009 'Natural Selection' show at www.LabourLove.com gallery in Durham, NC featuring fibers, rusted metals, burlap and even a few parched white bones in my own work. Natural Selection 2.0 took place Feb/Mar 2011 at Dakota State University in Madison, SD with artists from around the country (Phoenix, Brooklyn, Washington, Philadelphia, etc) & Platon Hadjimichalis of Brussels, Belgium.

I launched www.DestrySparks.com early in 2010. Facebook though is the best way to stay abreast of my art projects. I also wrote about NC art in Arts Alive magazine for many years before its demise in 2011. My work is listed in the Sandler File at www.artistsspace.org from NYC.

I plan to stay active in the Richmond, VA & Washington, DC art scenes and in my home state of NC in Charlotte plus at www.twogalleries.net & www.inkstonegallery.com. I will continue to show nationally in cities from Miami to Boston as much as is practically possible. Next up is a solo show at the Contemporary Art Fair 2012 NYC at the Jacob Javits Center OCT 19-21. In November 2012 I'll have work in the two person show 'Captured Transience' at the Trestle Gallery at the the Brooklyn Art Space facility.

I had a large solo show which closed March 20, 2011 at www.artworksrichmond.com followed by my NYC debut at John Kuchera's New American Art Studio near Coumbia University in April. I ended my busiest year ever with solo shows at UNC-Charlotte then with one at St. Thomas University in Miami. Hopefully 2011 will not go down as the year in which I died of exhaustion!
