The Princeville Mural Project has received a generous material funding grant from Golden Artists Color or New York.  This grant has made it possible for a multi phased outreach project that started this fall with three graduate African American Art Students in the ECU School of Fine Arts area.  I am guiding the project through a number of development phases that will have benefit to the artists, community of Princeville, and the school children of the area that will take part in the Repo history phase of the project.  The lasting effects of this project will be in the areas of civic and community collectiveness mentoring and monitoring.  I will be collecting research material in each of these areas for research publication and national presentations or teacher workshops to assist others in community outreach methodology.

I am developing a series of articles for art education publication.  These will be submitted to the Journal of the National Art Education Association and Art Studies.  These articles will be in conjunction with my area of interests and work with Dr Peter London, summer 2007.  These articles and others will flow from studio fine arts practices of ECU/SOAD.  The influences and roles studio practice has in pre-service art education will be discussed as 21st century visual arts education paradigm.

Further, Art Education connections and Civil Rights will also be published and presentations made to advance the importance of both causes.

I am actively restoring, racing and showcasing important British formula racing cars of the 1970’s era.  This process involves considerable historical, mechanical, and creative knowledge germane to the history of Vintage Racing Cars.  I am also a dual license holder able to actively compete with the single seat racing cars in North American and England.  Photos of my racing cars have appeared in International Racing publications.  Summer 2003 and 2006.
