Using a variety of mixed-media processes, I create large format two-dimensional works, small sculptures, and installations that visually and thematically represent shortcomings in education.
An art teacher by trade, I use images and marks typical to our everyday experiences in school and integrate them with my observations from the inside of our education system. I aim to create a dialogue for increasing awareness around the issues and injustices that negatively impact our youth; and ultimately, the health and wellbeing of our nation and future.
