I am a visual artist creating contemporary, abstract painting and sculpture. I have two sons, ages 5 and 7, who are made of pure awesome. I read, exercise, and cook a healthy breakfast of buckwheat pancakes and eggs from my own chickens every day. I play dominoes (42) and love two-step dancing.
About my artwork:
My artistic inquiry into the creative process and use of materials parallels the philosophic inquiry of becoming and being. I incorporate all approaches of art making in mixed media, from careful rendering in oil paint, to casting concrete in modular forms, to outsourced fabrication with industrial finishes.
My art has been exhibited at The People’s Gallery at Austin City Hall (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011); at the Courtyard Gallery for a solo show, and at the Creative Research Lab in group shows at The University of Texas at Austin; at my studio and home for the East Austin Studio Tour since its inception in 2003; at Decorazon Gallery in Dallas, Texas producing a collaborative show Shine + Burn: Chenoweth & Campbell in 2008, and at art fairs in London, Miami, New York and Santa Fe. I was a presenter for Pecha Kucha Austin Vol. 8. My work has also been shown in Kansas City, Santa Fe, San Antonio, and Houston.
I sought out an amazing education: a B.F.A. in Painting and Sculpture from Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, Missouri; a M.A. from the “Great Books” program at St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico; and a M.F.A. in Painting from The University of Texas at Austin in Austin, Texas. I've taken private studio courses from Sam Scott in Santa Fe and an intensive language course in ancient Greek.
I serve as a panelist for the City of Austin’s Art in Public Places program. Fisterra Studio is a WBE certified vendor through the City of Austin. I was an Essentials Class Member of 2012 in Leadership Austin. I works in Austin, Texas in my studio, and as a member of collaborative design teams, designing and creating commissioned private and public artwork.
