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.
“Participating in BELONGING allowed me to share how I connect children with nature, land, and bring a sense of belonging to a place”
“Everybody earns a second chance just like Eddie Hadvina in West of Lincoln Project”
What an experience it all was living out the theme of I AM HERe, then sharing with our community through our exhibit. I feel truly grateful to Ruth for her vision and to each artist for what she brought to this journey.
“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”
