A Footnote

Since the beginning of my career exhibiting my work has been an important component of my practice. Garnering a public response continues to be a high priority. Thus, including a live audience while combining performance with my art installation has been an ongoing endeavor. Such events are featured annually in my studio and other art venues.

In addition, extensive travels throughout Europe, Asia, and South America, continue to broaden my experience and view of the world. In the end, my work thrives on transformation, but more importantly on human contact and the related exchange of information.
