Studio Number: 501
Primary Medium: Painting/maps
Secondary medium: mixed media

I work in painting, mixed media and imaginative map-making. I weave stories into art - using texts and writings in dynamic, lyrical geographies and portraits. Examples are: Geography of Home, a map of the Twin Cities made of the words and languages of people who live here, and Character Series - portraits of people made of their own writings and maps. Both projects were supported by MN State Arts Board grants. Last year I created 10 wooden figures of youth and their dreams for the International Labour Office and United Nations in Geneva. I also lead the Talking Suitcases™ project.

Studio Hours: by appointment
