WordyWoady Visual Arts

I boxed myself in for a long time artistically, believing myself to be “a writer”. Apparently, there’s a lot more to it.


Photography and (maybe, soon) photos of my other artwork are on my SmugMug site, including the ongoing series “Coping Trails and Grind Business” (of which my current favorite is above).

According to my friend Colin, my living room “is like a lot of Cornell boxes, only without the boxes.” I bower-bird found objects into patterns pleasing to my mind and heart and eye.

I paint people with woad. I notice things, and take photos of them. Sometimes I take photos of people I have painted with woad. I make little installations and altars everywhere.

I started taking photos with some seriousness in 2014. In 2016, I made myself a SmugMug page and started putting pictures in organized galleries there, instead of just posting them on Facebook.
