About Me

I am a conceptual, inter-disciplinary artist.

Born in Louisville, KY. Living and working in Louisville, KY.

I was a member of an art collective called "The Louisville Assembly of Vanguard Art". On January 26th, 2008 our warehouse (the LAVA House) burned to the ground. It killed one person (Bill Christie) and a dog (Helvis). 11 artists lost their studios, 3 of whom were also residents living at the warehouse so they lost everything they owned.

You can learn more about what happened here: www.thelavahouse.org

We also have VERY SAD videos of the fire and the news media clips with coverage of the story here:

The fire is the most recent thing "about me" that's been all-consuming. My husband and I had scheduled our first major gallery show to open in April of this year. All our works-in-progress were destroyed. We decided to go ahead with the show (opening April 4th) at Swanson-Reed Gallery in Louisville KY. However, the new body of work we are creating for the show will explore our loss due to the fire and the emotions we're experiencing from being a part of such a major tragedy.
