"Vines" makes the front page!

Good Morning Houston!

Today on the front page of the Houston Chronicle you can read about METRO Arts in Transit and see images of the vine installation for Burnett Station.

After completing the final designs  in 2010, it is so exciting to see the stations being installed and being a part of such a momentous occasion for Houston transit.  Thanks to Sara Kellner for managing such a huge task so well.

Love Field Artist Reception

On Tuesday I was joined by my family and friends at an artist reception for the artists who created public work for Dallas Love Field.  It was a joy to share this moment and my work with my mother Lorena, her husband Ralph, my sister Rita and brother David, who all came down from Oklahoma for the event.  I am honored to be part of this collection with so many other great artists.

Long time friends and collaborators, myself and Saskia.

Good looking family!
