This exhibition was in process for two years and is a combination of my work abroad at Thread, an artist’s residency in Senegal, West Africa, and Gather:Make:Shelter, a citywide creative collaborative in Portland, OR. Both projects aim to enrich the lives of those in their community through creative practice and artistic pursuits with a focus on collaboration, engagement, skill-building, and connection. All of this work is related as I weave together life and work, which is a direct response to the energetic ties between all of us, thus lessening the miles between us conceptually and physically. It is increasingly important to me that all of my work, no matter its form, moves towards light, weaving us together and creating levity and beauty along the way.

Contemplative Practice

Curator Courtney Gilbert invited me to create two site specific installations at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts as part of the Contemplative Practice Exhibition 2017. Included in this exhibition was the second incarnation of the envelope project (first was at the Hoffman Gallery in Portland, Oregon) which solicited things participants wanted to clear. During a ceremony at the exhibition the envelopes were burned and the mica circle remnants remained as a collective memory of everyone’s intentions for clarity both personally and globally.

As Above, So Below

A site-specific installation for the San Juan Islands Museum of Art. Several components composed the installation including a temporary painting on the entire glass “skin" of the atrium in which I wrapped the building in hundreds of prayer beads. Indicative of the contemplative practices of many cultures worldwide these particular images were intended to be a prayer for the health of the Salish Sea that surrounds the islands.

Landscapes of the Inner Eye

A 365-day diaristic project that began and finished on the Autumnal Equinox. The project combines photographs taken daily with an additional layer of drawing embedded in the photographs using a simple digital drawing tablet. These drawings are the physical manifestation of the energy I felt in each place. As the year progressed the project's focus became one of my intimate collaboration with nature. This is a project I am interested in continuing to explore while in residence in other locations.

La Grande Robe

This project is dedicated to the women of Sinthian, Senegal, where I created this work in an artist residency at Thread, a project of the Joseph and Anni Albers Foundation. The project consists of two dresses and videos of the women working and children dancing. With La Grande Robe, my intention is for people around the world to see this installation and appreciate these powerful, beautiful, creative women; their work; and primarily, their humanity, which comes forward in all of their encounters and activities.
