Upcoming show at The Arts Company in Nashville


The Altered Image opens this Saturday May 4th during FirstBank First Saturday Art Crawl at The Arts Company in Nashville. Come by and say hi! As part of Art Gallery Day, artist Nick DeFord will be participating in a meet-and-greet at the gallery at 4pm ahead of the opening at 6.
In our ever-increasing digital world, photographs have become a part of daily life. When people are not posting their own filtered photos, they spend hours looking into the digital lives of others. But there is something special about a vintage photograph. Instead of hitting a like, there was a time these images were collected and assorted j to albums and frames—allowing the opportunity to ponder the images’ backstories. Featured artists include Hollie Chastain, Nick DeFord,  Rocky Horton, and Lisa Kokin.

Come Collage With Me!

Coming up on April 15th I will be teaching a collage workshop at Townsend Atelier here in Chattanooga! Bring your favorite scissors and any paper you might want to incorporate and I'll meet you there with everything else we'll need to explore this fun and versatile medium. We'll be trying several different techniques including using vellum to break down a sketch into individual parts that we can rebuild on a wooden panel using different materials. And of course I'm carting in a million book covers to share! The class is limited to 12 so grab a spot while there is still space available. You can get more info and sign up here. See you there! 

UPDATE! The first class filled up so quickly (thank you!) that we have added a second date on Sunday, May 20th!

Sign up here. 

New Year New Website!


The first bit of news is a website update! It's been a long time coming and of course I'm going to continue to pick at it every day for another 2 months but at some point you just have to say "Good grief I can't look at this for another second." and push it out there. I'm going to post here as often as possible but follow me on Instagram for regular studio and event updates and announcements.
