Besides being a full-time artist, I'm also an art preparator/ art handler. I've worked as a contractor for exhibition installations and take-downs for the NC Museum of Art, the Nasher Museum at Duke University, Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh and the Ackland Museum at UNC. There are also jobs in corporate collections as well.
My favorite gig was at the Nasher installing the "El Greco to Velazquez" exhibition in 2008. These photos were in the News & Observer paper and web site. I'm so proud of my hands! It's about time they get the recognition they deserve.
Even though it's part-time work, it helps pay the studio rent and I get to be around great art.
