In early 2017, I ventured into a new area with my work. This portfolio is a rough grouping of pieces I have made from the intensity of my own feelings, out of passionate anger/love/frustration. I invite you to read the concurrent blog posts as these pieces were created, and I will try to include relevant links in the captions or descriptions.
Learn to Question — Learn to Lead. See my blog posts about this piece and its acceptance into Threads of Resistance. read the full Artist Statement and hear me talk about it here.
