MSAC Individual Artist Award (IAA)2013
Artist StatementConcepts that run through my work range from contemplating an afterlife, using the subconscious to intuitively access information that is not always obvious to the waking mind, exploring subtexts of sensuality, humor, and joy, and our human relationship with the divine, our oceans, and metaphysics. I consider my processes to be more important than the concepts that might be embedded in the work.
I studied music and art history for my undergraduate degree, and have an MFA from Towson University. I have exhibited New York City, Washington D.C., Europe and, best of all, at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. I make tiny, cut paper dioramas in recycled packaging, tins, boxes, spoons and ephemera. I record and make audio that becomes the basis for stop motion animation.
