ARTIST • MOTHER • COMMUNITY ACTIVIST
Raised in VENICE, CA. I’m on a path that I never expected. Starting out as an oil painter that led to filmmaking, creating multi-media installations that include audio, social media, video, public art, and social engagement. My focus is on positive social change, working with concepts that reflect identity and the value of people.
“I was so touched by your beautiful work on the West of Lincoln Project. The feeling in your studio and the people I met there made me tear up several times. You are doing good work in the world, Namaste”
“What others often don’t understand about people who grew up in Venice during the late 70’s was that, in Venice, you had to be tough; hold your own on the street”
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of something that has awakened so much in me already!! There are no accidents in this world and I count this as an amazing gift!
“The BELONGING project gives a voice and perspective of the Nisenan Indians, the Native Americans who were here for countless generations before the California gold rush. This project will help raise visibility and awareness of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe”
“Growing up in Venice, I learned that we all make a choice in life – we choose where we want to live in our consciousness, and how we want to spend our precious days on this earth”
