Since graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, my work has continued to evolve out of an interest in the educational and social implications of art within a conceptual mixed-media framework. The essence of my work is to understand how we live with change and the constant flux of our environment, as witnessed through the anthropological notion of the Limen – the threshold through which one passes at the starting point for a new state or experience.

Through a combination of living as a temporary resident and collecting local stories about the environment, architecture, and history of a wide range of exhibition venues such as France, Costa Rica, California, the Midwest, Germany and my home of New York City, my process as an artist has developed into a method of working in collaboration with each new community in order to develop an interpretation of the sense of a place as an outsider looking in.
