Statement, March 2016


My process takes shape as I work on as many as 40 or 50 pieces at a time. My studio space affords me this option of addressing individual pieces, as well as advancing the larger body of work simultaneously. As such, the whole takes on a living persona that continually transforms and grows and expands as the pieces play off one another.


When I first enter the studio, I typically don’t touch or engage the work for an hour so; rather I study, contemplate, review, and visualize courses of action. Although it’s rare, there are times I simply walk out the door without touching a piece. When I do engage, as stated above, I evolve single pieces not only in terms of their unique characteristics, but also in terms of their more holistic dynamic within the whole of works that surrounds them.



I’m a multimedia artist working with paint, canvas, paper, wood, stone, steel and various reclaimed materials. I paint, draw, assemble, and construct in both 2-D and 3-D. My family, Jade Clement, and our two daughters Isla (4) and Ruby (1) currently reside in Salt Lake City, Utah. When we're not attending to the details of city and family life, we can usually be found on the rivers of Idaho or Montana – fishing, hiking camping and taking in fresh air.


I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on March 28, 1964 and was raised in Hailey, Idaho. After briefly attending Boise State University from 1982 to 1984, I transferred to the University of Utah in 1985 where I studied fine arts, illustration and graphic design. In 1991 I co-founded the firm Huddleston Malone Design, a graphic design, branding and marketing group, where I was creative director and a managing partner until 2002. From 1996 to 1998, I was the President of the American Institute of Graphic Design (AIGA), Salt Lake City Chapter. During my tenure at HMD, I was published in Communication Arts, Step-by-Step Graphics, HOW Design, and “Graphis” Design. In addition, I received numerous industry awards including those from the Utah Advertising Federation and the AIGA. In 2002 I shifted my focus to fine arts, specifically painting and sculpting. I have been producing art consistently since 2002, as well as supervising ongoing branding campaigns for various corporate accounts. My first solo exhibition was at the Phillips Gallery in 2007, and in 2009 I was featured in New American Paintings.
