My work is made entirely of felted wool I make and dye by hand. Making my own materials is an important part of my artistic process because it allows me to have a hand in every aspect of creating my art from start to finish. The unpredictability involved always yields unique and interesting results. Oftentimes holes, irregular edges and sizes, and interesting variations in color and texture occur. I never get the same shape or color twice, making each piece of felt I create totally one of a kind. I use the material and its imperfections to inspire me and guide my decision-making process about the art I create. Through the use of techniques such as stitching, quilting, applique, and reverse applique I turn what was once just plain white wool into colorful and dynamic abstract landscapes.
My inspiration comes from aerial photography, satellite images, and textures and shapes found in natural environments. From high above, the details of a place are stripped away leaving only an elegant design of intersecting, shapes, colors, and lines. I take thousands of miles of land and turn it into mere inches of felt and stitching, providing a unique overview of an expansive space that cannot adequately be seen and understood from the ground. I am particularly interested in representing landscapes where natural and man-made environments intersect and have a compelling influence on each other. I often use as inspiration areas affected by climate change, natural disasters, and human use. My intent is to create a simplified and thought-provoking way to view land, our impact on it, and relationship to it while leaving the work open to interpretation, putting no demands on the viewer to see one particular type of landscape over another.

Dean Wyatt creates multi-layered abstract paintings that are rich in color and texture and inspired by the landscapes of his native southwest Oklahoma. Of his work, Wyatt explains “I use landscapes as a backdrop to explore other themes. Most of my recent works depict some type of transition, whether day to night or the moving away (or toward) something. [more]
Steve Cluck is a painter, designer, and photographer based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Cluck's art has been shown in over 80 art exhibitions throughout the United States.
He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in printmaking at the University of Tulsa in 2005.
In 2005, Cluck started the design team Louis & Cluck (along with fellow Tulsa pop artist Zuri Louis). Louis & Cluck are best known for their clothing line that champions Oklahoma. Cluck's "Don't Hate the 918" and "I Heart Tulsa" campaigns have become unofficial slogans for the Tulsa area. A lifelong Okie, Cluck was inspired to make a clothing line championing Oklahoma because he wanted to proclaim his love for the great state of Oklahoma and leave a positive imprint.
Cluck won the Tulsey Award for "Arts & Entertainment" in 2012 and "Best Young Entrepreneur" in 2008. He's been named a "Mover and Shaker" by Urban Tulsa, a "40 Under 40" by Oklahoma Magazine and a "Top 10 Tulsan" by Tulsa World.
My work exists in the spaces near memories and experience. I look to engage the viewer in a visual discourse between the inherent sensuality, (history), of the figure and the fiction of memory’s recreation of experience. [more]
My art practice involves both painting and drawing. Each painting begins with an idea about color and composition. [more]
