I work in collaborative environments that foster a sense of belonging -- sharing information, sharing techniques, exchanging and donating artwork, creating exhibitions and workshops, and hosting other kinds of community events. I work with local non-profit organizations that assist returning veterans and families as the reintegrate into society. I also work with groups to creatively address issues in our community – hunger, communication, wellness and resiliency. My specific goals are to create collaborative arts experiences for these particular populations -- creating communication tools, artwork and organizing exhibitions centered on artistic expressions of healing and coping. Collaborative arts processes -- such as printmaking and papermaking -- are catalysts for communities to experiment with forms of expression and creativity, and are also opportunities to foster new ideas, advance critical thinking and form relationships.
