EDUCATOR

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.

FINE ART

Employing texture, scale, layering, color, and image sequencing I tell stories about energy. My aim is to invoke a yearning for a deeper experience of connection between people, objects, landscapes, and experiences.
