I was focusing on an over-arching theme of rebel romance, at times fun and dangerous, and other times dark comedy. The themes tied together a span of things including Korean War jet design, early biker gang culture, Bonnie & Clyde, prison breaks, classic high-speed chase scenes from films, and pulp book covers.
My work relies on man-made materials to create artificial environments that suggest “beauty” assigned to the natural landscapes or environments.

"It's Environmentally Inspired," IEI Austin's debut pop-up gallery and events space lit up downtown's 6th Street for three short weeks in February 2013. More than 1200 people attended our events, enjoyed fine arts and entertainment at the fabulous Graeber Estate.
Opening Night at the Graeber Estate
The show was installed at the Graeber Estate, an architecturally-inspiring home at 410 E. 6th Street, in the heart of downtown Austin.
The exhibition featured work by Jim Adams, Kristy Battani, Jennifer Chenoweth, Larry Graeber, Jenn Hassin, Nancy Germond, Soña Holman, Shanny Lott, Wells Mason, Flynnt Mishigan, Nan Toole, Matt Winters, and others.
During the show’s three-week run, hundreds of people attended events at this 4600 square-foot venue. Public events included an opening show, Sunday Salons, a ticketed Valentine's Day event, and a closing celebration party. Private events included supper clubs with Supper Underground and Pitchfork Supper Club, as well as professional networking events for The Austin International Interior Design Association (IIDA), the Austin Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (AGLCC), and the Austin chapter of Women and Wine. For more information, you can see our Proof of Concept Exhibit Overview (PDF).
A unique townhome on the National Register of Historic Places, the Graeber Estate at 410 E. 6th Street, was the home of renowned Architet David Graeber. In the late 1960s Graeber was one of the first to embrace downtown Austin living and began converting an 1880s Saloon (The Shamrock) into a 4800 squarefoot residence, where he lived for 40 years.
As the property transitioned to a commercial space in early 2013, IEI Austin installed and curated It's Envronmentally Inspired, an exhibition with more than a dozen local artists in a 3-week debut pop-up gallery and events space.
The exhibit featured "upcycled art" made from discarded post-industrial materials, and celebrated sustainability in subject, materials, or process.
Throughout February, IEI Austin held multiple events with the exhibition and historic building as a backdrop, reflecting our mission of promoting local visual arts community, and connecting people, businesses, and brands around the themese of sustainability and design.
Our first holiday show in Austin was a tremendous success. We met some wonderful people, had some interesting conversations, and sold some beautiful art. Many thanks to all those who came by to see the diverse works we had on display!Read More
