PROJECTS & COMMISSIONS

The Claire McCardell Project

Unveiling Spring 2021

The Frederick Art Club has initiated a project to honor Claire McCardell, a Frederick native who was an iconic fashion designer during the early 20th Century.  One of the first American women to have her name on the label of a clothing manufacturer, Claire was an artist, a visionary, and a very successful businesswoman.

The Frederick Art Club is honoring Claire by erecting a high-quality, 7 ½ foot bronze sculpture of her image in a prominent and beautiful public location in the City of Frederick. The statue will preserve Claire’s history and celebrate the achievements of pioneering Frederick woman, artist, and entrepreneur.

Chaos of Humanity

January 30, 2025

This continues to be a controversial piece with mixed reviews from art critics. To me, Chaos of Humanity represents an incredibly powerful theme that permeates our daily lives. With the use of color and abstract expression, I manage to evoke both the positive and negative energy of humankind, its selfishness, but also its incredible resilience.
