"Art should make you think and feel.
It doesn't have to match your couch."

My visual art tells stories and engages the world through often using my body as well as my life as material. Initially self-taught, I used media including collage, assemblage, installation, as well as both street and stage performance to communicate a wide variety of ideas. I emerged as “conceptual artist,” showing in Portland, New York, and a few spots around the globe. I then earned a Masters of Fine Art (MFA) from Portland State University.
Below are samples of my art about social issues.
