Artist Statement: I am an artist who fosters kinship through creativity, and my life’s work as an artist consists in working with a variety of differing communities. I am a West Virginia native currently living in the city of Lebanon, PA. I am a follower of Jesus, a wife and mother of two young boys. My artistic background is in scenic art for theater. However in 2006, I worked on a project that transitioned me into community-based work. My passion is to see every person living their full potential as their true self in kinship with all others. I am adept at creating safe creative spaces to gather people around important ideas, drawing all participants to offer their own voice to the creative conversation, and ensuring each person leaves knowing that they have contributed creatively to something greater than themselves.
