I have Work with students to create a public art project for the gallery. I been a Visiting Artist at Stanford University in Stanford CA.
My interest in the nature of the human form comes from living with Cerebral Palsy. I look at my body. Then I look at other people’s bodies to see how they move through physical and intellectual spaces differently than someone who does not have to consciously control every step.
I currently live in Somerville, MA. My studio is at the Mad Oyster Studios, Somerville, MA.
