I am interested in the art of knowledge – how do we know what we know? Particularly 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, time, the feminine, and notions of truth. Drawing from my current research/writing in philosophy and aesthetics and nearly twenty years working 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 draw attention to the reverie and wonderment of everyday life and some are laced with a subtle humor.
