The world around me inspires both intense curiosity and profound reverence. My creative responses include site-specific and collaborative works as well as sculptural pieces and mosaics. I am particularly focused on creating art that speaks across cultural, religious, or economic differences.
In addition to my own studio practice, I’ve worked as a university professor, art program manager, and gallery coordinator. Two favorite projects from this past year include designing and executing a 75-piece ceramic mosaic with elementary students at Beaver Valley School, and founding Mere Objects, a participatory artwork honoring people who have experienced sexual violence.
Since 2012, I have lived and worked at the Grünewald Guild, an intentional community in the Cascade Mountains of Washington state.
