I am a designer, educator and writer,
Creativity, curiosity and critical thinking infuse my work.
I believe in vision and voice, making essence into image.
With a practical focus, I always ask
what are we trying to say, who cares, how do we reach them?
I believe in engaging the eyes, the intellect and the emotions
Discovering through experimentation, creating narratives,
I continually investigate new methods, media and materials.
