Installations

Fun, bold interior and exterior decorative elements represent my love of delight and exaggeration.  Some examples are showcased here: lanterns, metal and vinyl flowers, a giant ribbon and a hallway floor painted to look like a flowing river.

Beacons:  My long-time art associate, Karen McVay Butch, and I created a lighted garden installation for Ships of the Sea Museum in Savannah in the winter of 2018.  The figures moved gracefully in the breeze.

Lanterns:  Karen McVay Butch and I were engaged by Savannah College of Art and Design to create an installation of giant lanterns in an old jail for a party during Design Week 2010. The lanterns are made of painted and dyed nylon, Tyvek and plastic.

Flowers:  Savannah College of Art and Design requested an art piece above an outdoor pool at their campus in Lacoste, France.  In response to this call, I invented a group of 85+ flowers made of vinyl, aluminum, glass and plastic.  The flowers were assembled on site in 2011.  I continue to create and develop flowers of differing types to decorate buildings, both inside and out.

Ribbon 4'x12'.jpg

Ribbon:  I made a ribbon for my living room wall that represented the chakras, like an energy wave.   The Savannah College of Art and Design purchased it and installed it in two pieces above a stairwell - a total, but cool, surprise to see it split in half and upside down!

River: The old school I live and work in has a 100’ hallway that I am painting to look like the river that runs through my community, the New River.
