"Feminist art focuses on people as wholes;
the human is made up of body and emotion
as well as mind and spirit."
I understand and experience art making to be a co-relational and performative ritual act. My art and inquiry projects to date have focused on community-engaged art as public pedagogy, collaboration, and restorative and transformative learning. I have a particular interest in the problematics of representation of the human body in art and how embodied relationships with others and our selves, are represented and understood in society. In many of these projects, I have worked with artists from diverse disciplines (i.e. dance, theatre, visual arts, creative writing, music), and with community members, co-creating with participants from ages 3 to 78.
The past, present and future of my artworkings are devoted to understanding art and writing as an embodiment of sharable co-encounter events that hold possibilities for individual and cultural re-attunement, critical inquiry and transformation.
