"Meet the Artist" Reception:
Friday, September 13, 7 to 8:30pm
For well over a decade, I have been working as a professional visual artist. Born in Los Angeles, California, I currently live and work in Southern New Jersey. My work has moved progressively from a search into the urban landscape and the city to the spaces where the city meets nature at public parks and then to explorations of more wild natural environments that serve as settings for figures. I continue to examine how gender, race, sexuality and power figure into people's experiences within the physical and social geographies of the city and nature. I am interested in creating narratives of love and loss, fulfillment and emptiness, shadow and light. I work in photography, mixed media, collage and painting. I value the diversity of my art practice as I work conceptually with the medium that is appropriate for my ideas.
