I am inspired to make art that facilitates community togetherness, and moves the audience to let their freak flags fly.
Creating and wearing a mask, such as in my Monsterlove project, provides participants new ways of thinking about what art can be. Once brought to life, the masks introduce us to another world, even when worn in our very own neighborhoods.
Whatever I have my hands on or in, I am an obsessive up-cycler, with resourcefulness in mind. I work in a variety of media: primarily painting, paper mache, collage, mosaic, photography, and sewing.
Please contact me for collaborations, community art, workshops, commissioned pieces, and live painting!
