Currently, I am a MAAT student at SMWC. This a several leaps and decades from my BFA in 3D Computer Animation at SCAD.
I have tapdanced in musicals, sang in jazz clubs, programmed in Houdini, instructed art in public and private schools in the US and Italy, run a party planning business, and done freelance with some interesting companies. Currently, I run three blogs and an online art group via Zoom.
I have a husband, two small dogs, and a 13-year-old daughter.
I also do stand up. Like you
My inspirations herald from symbolic object associations stored in genetics, object attachment theories, and the art of storytelling–> that transcend culture and technology.
I am intrigued by shadow; both from environmental sources and archetypal suppression.
In my art I often explore the perception of color, as manipulated by marketing (Pantone color of the year), as it exists parallel to our innate preferences and psychological experiences of self-identity and is now subject to a lens of multiculturalism.
I mock commercial imagicide in social media, study the gender stereotypes and two-spirit art in indigenous peoples, and encourage the co-creation of art by communities in crisis; as a way to combat the in red anxiety of my x-millennial generation.
Grad Students don’t actually make art, ahahhahahhaaaa.
No, I do.
