Originally a New Yorker now transplanted to Nashville, I’ve lived in the south for the last nine years. My work lies somewhere between illustrative narrative, photography, and collage. Imagery is stripped down to its most basic elements, light and texture. Details are taken away then integrated back into the artwork to shape new composite works. Forever analyzing the enigma of being human, I continuously constructs and deconstructs the boundaries of my photographic world.
There has been a natural progression for me to move from 2D art into 3D, augmented realty and experimental animated film. Currently I am designing wall sculpture receptacles called “Portals” for moving artworks, and have integrated streaming augmented reality narrating stories with movement and sound into most 2D works.
I’ve produced a number of installations including portraiture of iconic and contemporary artists that are now a part of the permanent art collection at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame. Other select installations include a profile of Girl With a Scar at Tennessee’s Custom’s House Museum and several large format public works at Nashville’s InternaHonal Airport for Fly Nashville and Bonnaroo / AC Entertainmet.
As a visiting artist at Harvard University, I collaborated with the Disease and Biophysics Group, creating abstract artwork using a ground breaking nanofiber technology for wound healing and tissue repair developed by Tarr Family Professor Kit Parker. The collaborative series is entitled Nano Stasis Cosmic Garden.
A Thousand Hands: A Million Stars is a creative, collaborative effort uniting visual art, poetry, music and song, created and performed all by women as a vehicle to bring awareness, empowerment and a voice to those that have been rendered silent and hopeless by their experience in human sex trafficking. Partnering with a performance artist, poet and song writer, and dancers, the project is designed to illicit an emotional response and empathy for an often misrepresented and misunderstood issue. A Thousand Hands will be premiering September 18 at The Toledo Museum of Art / Center for Visual Arts
A recipient of the Woman Art Award 2017, for the Women’s Essence Show, Espace Cominnes, Paris, France, my work can be found in collections and corporate installations throughout the United States and Europe.
