Artist Statement

In my artwork and in my life’s work, I am most inspired by the beauty of everyday people. I try to represent us in ways that are honest, in ways that we want to be seen, with honor and respect. I’m interested in stories, songs, families, histories, travels, traditions, dreams, resourcefulness during hard times and everyone’s expertise in their own life. I’m interested in making obvious both our humanity and our divinity, as well as the fact that we are all related. My artist books, prints, mixed-media drawings and installations are often made in collaboration with the people they depict. Always made with love, my art seeks to be a vehicle and a catalyst for healing, reconciliation, and hope.
