Medium: Painting (small and large scale, vertical and horizontal), textile, metal sculpture
I am an artist who views creative practice as a form of research. Using data from a specific site as a structure, I give form to things that invisibly motivate our actions. I have partnered with green building community organizations, climate change activists, arts organizations and government agencies to make public art pieces that address our relationship to labor, ethics, history, nature and technology.
From the rooftops of Brooklyn to the Pedestrian plazas of Times Square, I have created outdoor site-specific paintings in New York City and exhibited across the United States. I have been a resident artist at the Salina Art Center in Kansas and in the Art & Law Program with the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in NYC. My work was part of Spontaneous Interventions: design actions for the common good in the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale.
I have been an artist in residence at Recess Activities/Pioneer Works (2012), in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Program (2013) and Smack-Mellon (2014). In the spring of 2013 I installed a permanent exterior painting for the Garden at The James Hotel in Lower Manhattan. Recent commissions include a 6,000 sq. ft. mural for Toledo, a temporary garden for a city block in Seattle, and a sculpture for a light rail station in Denver. In 2016 I will relocate to Oklahoma to be part of the inaugural cohort of the Tulsa Artist Fellowship.
