metalsmith / designer / educator
February 24-26, 2011, Yuma, AZ
"The Yuma Symposium is comfort food for hungry artists." I presented a lecture Urban Image Metalsmithing: coded and coated graphics, that covered the inspiration that I draw from the graffiti and marketing graphics coated, LA landscape. I will related my visual works to a lineage of metalsmiths working in the graphic narrative. I also reveal some of my powder coating techniques during a demonstration of the process.
