I am interested in the art of knowledge. Particularly, the “tug” that exists between measurement and lived experience, the rational and the sensuous, the logical and the sensual. 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, history, the feminine, and 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 public art commissions, interactive events, curating, and writing to photography, sculpture, drawing, print-making, and installation. The artworks often draw attention to the wonderment of everyday life and are laced with a subtle humor.
