My Dual Practice
Having never lived in one place for more than 3 years at a time until settling here, I am very attached to this place that I have called home for the past 20 years. This sense of place, both the people and the surrounding are the subjects of my work.
In my private practice I am very self-indulgent with my studio time; exploring a long standing fascination with optics, color and light.
I have a very public practice too because I believe art is integral to a healthy society. I use my skills as a facilitator, organizer, teacher and artist to build community, to foster youth artists and to grow a wider audience for art. All the public mosaics I have had the privilege of coordinating have beautified cities and have demonstrated how art has the power to bring us together for the greater good.
