Visual & Social Artist
Creativity, innovation and the arts are needed in all aspects of life and are undeniably valuable to any professional endeavor. My work in community & political leadership, public policy, and civic engagement are guided by a fundamental knowledge in art-making. My passion for art fuels and informs my leadership work. I work to connect people with ideas in a new way. Experiences in the world inspire my painting, photography, sculpture and writing.

This installation represented dialogue and visual imagery that came from the people by bringing street art, protest posters, language and cultural references from both sides of the aisle into the gallery space. Open mic allowed people to express themselves in spoken word, poetry, readings, confessions, impersonations and enactments.
