art projects

My artwork explores language, repetition, and social structures, encouraging viewer curiosity and interaction. Projects develop conceptually, leading to work in a variety of media, including: artist's books, gallery installation, photography, public art, and performance. Many projects are ongoing, long-term creative actions. I often collaborate with artists and groups; developing projects through creative dialog. My work has been been exhibited and presented internationally, and collected by public and private collectors.
