Every human possesses great potential to develop their talents and to contribute to their community. Art, music, science, storytelling, and movement are vitally important to learning about ourselves, about teamwork, and creating meaningful relationships. My art and educational work celebrates human potential and precious human connections whether I’m supporting the growth of artists and storytellers, exploring our shared history of gender, or creating my own art.

Meeting with communities to share and exchange information enlivens and strengthens connections. 


Using a hands-on approach, I support young learners in finding new ways to explore and express their ideas using science, technology, arts, architecture and math. 


Women have a unique history that requires a more nuanced understanding in order for all of us to continue to learn and manifest our unique talents.
