Profile Information

Performance Discipline
Artist
Bio
Generally inspired by a story telling narrative that is not that different from the first art created on cave walls to the songs of Nina Simone and Patti Smith, my process blends folk traditions with fine art traditions and humanity with mysticism. The idea of the tangible and intangible, eternal and ephemeral both inhabiting and sharing an uneasy co-existence within a piece fascinates me.

I am a Scotch-Irish-Cherokee child of Appalachia, and former corporate lawyer, whose work investigates the path of individual self-actualization within conformist-based societal norms. “Outsider” positioning within the dominant cultural narratives, queer politics and politics of representation are major themes in my work.

I push myself to engage deeply with the ideas behind my projects and continually explore cross-media practices, alternative contexts of production, and new models for exhibition. My work deploys traditional as well as emerging conceptual/inter-disciplinary visual arts practices, film, experimental theatre genres. Most all of my performance work contains a special focus on poetry/music collaborations.
