ABOUT THE ARTIST
“You’re a juxtaposed artist, Courtney; an artist striving to be to be too many things all at once.” It was completely true, and extremely difficult to market. This fact, more than anything, drove the gallery curators completely mad. My artwork style was nearly impossible to fit into a neat, clean, category box.
For me though, being a Juxtaposed Artist has always been a unique and fortunate experience; I’m a Painter, a Photographer, a sculptor, a renderist, a landscape architect, a ecologist, a writer. I’ll work in any medium with any materials available; Concrete, Acrylic, Watercolor, Colored pencil, marker, Wood, plants. I’ll work in any Style; Minimalism, Abstract expressionism, abstract colorist, industrial design. After all, these things are tools for the artist, ways to turn thoughts into a visual expression. My style was never about the canvas type, the materials used, or the style; it’s about the story.
I’ve always viewed my art form as - the act of knowing how to see; gathering up all my private moments of experience, specialized information, and then turning all of that, into a visual representation of the human experience and something the reflects our current zeitgeist.
My artwork, as a visual medium, should be seen as a roadmap. The result is just one path, one journey, how someone else’s eyes can look out and into the world. Intrinsically the starting point of this the journey and experience is mine; … but the destination of the story, that belongs to the viewer. That belongs to you. It is up to each individual to take with them, not any particular brand of truth, but the possibility of uncovering experience and personal meaning from the stories I provide.

AcryiCrete and abstract watercolors-
These works are a celebration of color, texture and energy. For me, the medium of abstract, allows me to produce images that convey emotions of a whimsical and joyful nature.
-AcryliCrete™ - a concrete texture medium in bold colors; painted on large wood panels.
-Watercolor – abstract watercolors and acrylic; painted on large wood panels
I photograph the world; not the picturesque world of nature’s perfection (although sometimes even I can’t help myself) but the state of the world that surrounds us. Our zeitgeist. My photography is about the ‘spirit of our times’ showing, and telling the stories, about the world our children will inherit from us; for better or worse.
