I'm a New Yorker transplanted to Nashville and have 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 construct and deconstruct the boundaries of my photographic world.
There has been a natural progression for me to move from 2D art into 3D, AR and VR and experimental animated film. My first animated non narrative short A Magic Lantern premiered at Aggregate Space Gallery's 2nd annual film festival in July 2018, winning Most Seductive Animation. Tinney Contemporary in Nashville Tennessee will be showcasing my installation Portals, a solo show displaying alternative modes of artwork that go beyond the physical space of the gallery, moving into video, augmented and virtual reality in January 2019.
Most currently a collaborative project, A Thousand Hands A Million Stars, about human trafficking will premiere at the Toledo Museum of Art September 12 at their Center for Visual Arts. It will also be a highlight at the International Human Trafficking & Social Justice Conference in Toledo September 19 and then at Toledo Arts Momentum September 19 - 21
This is a performance piece of survivor stories that tells of their journeys in, through, and out of human trafficking via poetry, music and visual art.
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 International Airport.
As a visiting artist at Harvard University I've collaborated with the Disease and Biophysics Group, creating abstract artwork using a ground breaking nanofiber technology. The collaborative series is entitled Nano.Stasis Cosmic Garden.
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.
