As an artist I have worked in a wide range of media including video, photography, drawing, painting, embroidery, artist books, site-specific maps, and creative writing. I have always been interdisciplinary and experimental in my creative research, mixing visual and literary media, making and thinking, art and philosophy. My early artwork is heavily conceptual. I loved that approach and continued to feel the influence of ideas. Yet, seeking greater bodymind integration and a deeper connection to what might be called soul or spirit, my focus over recent years has shifted from conceptual to more participatory, performative, and process-based approaches to artmaking. Since 2015 I have certified in teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Kundalini Yoga and these trainings have increasingly found their way into my studio and teaching. A growing emphasis on combining somatic, contemplative, and art practices now shapes my creative research.
