Bio

I am a printmaker, bookmaker, fiber artist, mailartist, and costume designer.

Artist's Statement

Community
Camaraderie
Communication

My art often involves working closely with others, sharing thoughts, laughter, passions, time and physical space. The sense of community is extremely important in my creative process. Political, social, moral and humanitarian concepts are themes which I often visit in my individual work.
