Public Art Installations: Throughout the The United States, Paris and Melbourne, my have created large scale art installations - primarily based on The Human Element Project.
Graphic Design: Combining my sense for space, composition and marking, this portfolio represents 25 years of experience in conceptualizing advertising campaigns and designing packaging and collateral for beauty, cosmetic and fashion related industries.
Enhanced Photography: An intimate look into the diversity of indigenous people worldwide that captures moments of grace and joy amid the poverty and suffering of the developing word. This work is a colorful and textural interpretation of those bonds, which is first recorded through the camera lens and then enhanced with pastel and acrylic.
Mixed Media: Mixed media collages and assemblages combine my passion for texture and global cultural imagery. My work combines raw canvas, paper, photography, acrylic paint mediums and chalk pastel.

My work is based on healing… spiritual, emotional and physical. I believe that retelling one’s story is not only crucial to the healing process, but also a means of permanently recording a moment in time. It invites the past and the future onto the same plane and into the same present moment, allowing us to see all things as one and to give shape to the nuances of living history.
