Social Practice

I am a socially-engaged artist who relishes working with community to create artwork that not only enhances their lives, but also the greater population. Issue based artwork allows for communities to articulate their perspective(s), which provides opportunities for them to become their own agent of change. Community is defined here as any number of individuals who share some commonality either defined by location, organizational relationship or any demographic classification.

Social Practice work is based on the artist amplifying the community's voice by placing it in a framework of the artist's design.
