I've been labeled a post-conceptualist, and I enjoy working with many different tools and mediums, including found objects, photography, and video. In my most recent work, I transmute found materials and non-traditional arts supplies— like bones, mylar, yarn and pearls—into singular objects and ideas. The one theme that unites all my work and series is the desire to create, question and combine the sublime to subtle details of life: growth and decay, past and present, personal and political, and the vibrant space between the seen and the unseen.
My interview, "Political Artistry," in the 2016 Mount Holyoke College Alumnae Quarterly is now out in print. In it I discuss how I became an artist, the importance of attention, and the connection between art and politics. You can read it here.
Last year, LandEscape Art Review selected myself and 8 other artists from nearly 4000 international submissions to be featured in their January 2015 issue. That 16 page interview covers my installations, video art, several of my documentary photography series, and new art projects. You can read it now.
