I realized recently, that I'm meant to be here. Where here is... it's a corridor up highway 10. It's a circle around the Midwest. It's a sofa next to my kids, binge watching vintage TV. It's a grill and cooler of beverages.
Art happens in those spaces, and I did not need an F in my art degree. Fine it is, but okay it will not be. It's extraordinary in its own right.

Her work ranges from abstract to real images, meant to conjure up emotional responses. Her interest in architecture, structures and systems can be found in many of her grid-like compositions. Her empathy can be found in her work featuring people in our every day lives, or even lost through a computer screen. Her work has been found on posters in peaceful marches in Ferguson and Minneapolis, in hope that peace will be found in our nation.
