I’m passionate about using art to make a difference and I’ll take big risks to do so.

I don’t come from a fine arts background. I’ve gone back to school the last two years, first to get a welding certification, and then to finish my BA in studio art, but really my education has come from working side by side with other artists, and I’ve learned by doing.

 

From high performance concrete to metal to crochet to polymers to wood, paint, rubber, plaster, ceramics, etching circuit boards and light wiring, I have an unusually versatile background in large-scale public work.

Clients &

Collaborations

Community art has such a potential for bringing people together, giving them an opportunity to participate in something larger than themselves, and giving them a sense of ownership over something new that exists in the world.
