Visual Artist Fellow (2009)
Statement of Work
The variety of imagery that inspires and influences my work range from biology, anatomical studies, stained glass windows, marquees, church signs, and sacred structures. I make use of glitter, lights, and shiny materials in an attempt to transform situations. From guts to glory, throwing glitter over blood, phlegm and tears. I was born with a life threatening diagnosis, and received a double lung transplant at 37 years old. My work, like my body, is infused with shiny, health cells and DNA. I use a baroque influenced approach in an attempt to find hope amidst seeming hopelessness.
