My artworks critically and playfully challenge our relationship to the tug that exists between measurement and lived experience, the rational and the sensuous. Born in Buffalo, aged in Philadelphia, and seasoned in Australia, Scotland, and New York City, a curiosity and love of place has been a constant inspiration since childhood. What began as an artistic inquiry into the "tug" of place has grown into a broader examination of this tug in language, the feminine, time, and notions of truth. In these works, I often draw attention to the sense of wonderment in everyday life. Drawing from my current research in philosophy and aesthetics and nearly twenty years of professional experience in the fields of architecture and graphic design, I create artworks in multiple mediums from drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and installation to public art commissions, interactive events, curating, and writing. The artworks often have a cheeky sensibility and are laced with a subtle humor.
