Artist’s Statement

My passion is to interweave color theory, iconic content, and education with hopeful beliefs and storytelling to produce a multi-layered message about kind acceptance. As an artist, educator, and arts advocate, I initiate and encourage the importance of creative education and community participation in the arts that is active and inclusive while empowering individuals to express themselves with optimism.

The intent of my artwork is to demonstrate the idea of humans’ ability to oscillate between existing as one of a kind, as well as, one of a greater assemblage. The work is a narrative of my convictions, conduct, and courage for acceptance and inclusion. My belief is that we are all different in our own way, and that makes us equal. We have the ability to embrace the dual nature of light as a wave and a particle of matter. We also have the potential to be filled with awe, instead of fear, in the confidence that we are unique, as well as, united.

A great deal of my artwork is crafted from textile methods and playful interpretations of identity through colorful means. I have been working with computers as a fine art and interactive medium for over twenty-eight years. This technique lends itself to sculptural artwork and my assemblages contain elements of computer-enhanced images, transparencies, hand weaving, and textiles.
