The Art Market Gallery is a cooperative of more than sixty East Tennessee artists dedicated to providing a vibrant marketplace for original art and fine crafts. We are located in the heart of downtown Knoxville with convenient parking on Gay Street, State Street Parking Garage and Market Square Parking Garage.
In 1997 I retired and moved to Knoxville, Tennessee and began my career as a ceramic artist. Although I have studied with many regional artist, most of my work has been self-directed. Focusing on “Raku Firing” as a direction for my work has been an especially enjoyable process. I have expanded this to include horse hair firing.
Recently, my interests have expanded to exploring new methods in photography and digital imaging. I call my work “Photo Illustration.” My art has evolved from photography-based work to using photography as an element in digital collage. I use photography, digital brush work, and color manipulation, among other techniques, to create truly integrated digital “Photo Illustrations”.
I am a member the Foothills Craft Guild, ETACA and former member the Board of the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists. My work can be seen in galleries in Tennessee and North Carolina.
