I am passionate about my work, promoting community identity and more livable public places through Art. I am an Interdisciplinary Artist and Designer, with a stellar track record spanning over 32 years. My work thrives at the intersections of Art with Urban Design, Environment and Infrastructure, bridging the gaps between disciplines to create a meaningful and engaging public realm.
My projects are best known for symbolic pattern work, the play of sunlight and shadow over sculptural form, and my ability to conceptually engage the entire site as a canvas. My works are layered in meaning, inviting multiple views, and sustained interest. I excel in collaborations, with professionals and communities with different backgrounds than my own, promoting thoughtful, expansive dialogue and discovery. I am a good communicator and I have the ability to build consensus among diverse groups by culling information and revealing human core values that transcend, age, race, or wealth. As one of the first women artists in the field of public art for transportation, I have successfully trail blazed this field, expanding possibilities for all by successfully delivering work that meets or exceeds all expectations. I work across cultural differences by being an authentic advocate for all that I serve, promoting best practices and holistic design through Public Art.
I am knowledgeable in all phases of design, cost estimating, fabrication, and construction. I am constantly honing my skills. In 2013, I earned a Certificate in Digital Design and Fabrication from UW. These digital tools expand my abilities to realize my work on the scale of the city, and to embrace a more experimental process in image and fabrication development. My practice includes design team collaborations, site specific installations, mentoring interns, public engagement and public art master planning, promoting economic development through the Arts.
