I have been working in Public Art in the Phoenix area since 2005. I enjoy being able to make artwork that is site specific and integrated into the community for the general public to see.
I am a collector of stuff! As a result, I consider myself a mixed media artist, first investigating the materials that art can be made from, then examining many concepts and processes that lead to the completion of my ideas.
Over the past 20 years, each decade, I have created a year long project in 2000, 2010, and currently 2020. It is a test of the creative process when making one art piece or doing one action each day of the year.
In January 2023, Mark Brodie interviewed me for "The Show", on KJZZ, our local NPR station in Phoenix. The interview was about the paper quilt that was in the Art Quilts XXVII: Revitalized exhibition at Vision Gallery in Chandler, AZ. Click below to listen:
In fall of 2020, I made a 30 minute video for Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovations about my process of making my paper list quilt, Great Grandma's Crazy Quilt Transformed, and incorporated an at home art project that is fun for all. Click below to watch and read about it.
In 2019 Voyage Phoenix did an online article about my work. Click this link to read:
