Public Art Practice

The focus of my public art is defining the site with a cultural and historical reference that resonates with the local community. The concepts of Creative Placemaking are integral to my work. Two public art projects have received a Las Vegas Mayor’s Urban Design Awards for Public Art. The first award was in 2008.  I was a design team member with Dayo Adelaja, Sylvester Collier and Adolfo R. Gonzalez for the sculpture "Ancestral Gateway." The second award was in 2011 for "Flourish", a cultural urban trail consisting of twelve sidewalk enhancements along the Cultural Corridor. I have completed 9 public art projects to date.
