My work spans a range of media from prints and book arts, to sculpture and public works. Two degrees in printmaking, over a decade of residencies in artist’s communities/National Parks, and a parallel career teaching art in Title I Public High Schools for over 20 years have nurtured a desire to make my work accessible to a broad range of people, and supportive of the communities that I am part of. By making multiples I am able to spread my own community around, while leaving pieces of Miami in the communities I travel to. I bring Miami wherever I go, and bring other artists home to my friends and colleagues.
