studio 1330 Quincy St NE #306
I have been practicing art and architecture in the Twin Cities area for 28 years and enjoy a sunny studio office in bustling Northeast Minneapolis. I studied Fine Arts, Dance, Chinese Language & Lit, and Architecture and have settled into a life which now involves most of those things.
Gesture is important to me in both my sculptural work and my paintings. As evidence of the physical body within a work, it connects us deeply with the process of making and the physicality of the maker. I am interested in the capacity of the body to influence the mind and for me, physically producing work is at the center of feeling alive and an important part of this world. The artwork I make is reflective of the centered pursuit of a unified body and mind; dynamic yet quiet, strong and soft, hopeful. I explore ideas of balance, strength of center, and connection through the use of poised form in play, pursuit, work, or prayer. I am curious about a calm mind in service of our physical beings-- freeing my own body in this world, my hands in the process, and the body of this work.
