About the Artist

I am an artist, a designer, writer and educator. My work emphasizes the cross-sections of culture, media and meaning.

My design and consulting work specializes in cross-cultural visual communications, graphic design and marketing for educational and cultural organizations from around the globe. Clients have ranged the globe from across the US, as well as Europe and the South Pacific. They have represented the environment, cultural and educational institutions, commercial businesses and professionals from a wide range of industry.

As an artist, my work is not limited by media and explores the many intersections that can occur across digital and traditional media. My subject matter is the world, the environment, culture and society, exploring the layers of meaning that are visible or not, changing and overlapping creating new insights and ancient revelations.

Originally from the northeast area of the USA, I moved to the South Pacific in 1991 with my husband and young children to work at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji. For six years, I was immersed in a cross-cultural experience that has had greatly impacted my life and outlook, shaping a visual and educational philosophy that I have brought to my work, both in the studio and the classroom. From the South Pacific, our lives shifted to the Midwest, where I accepted a position as an instructor and developer of a new graphic design program at Mott Community College. A firm believer in the old adage "bloom where you are planted", the work in Flint is rewarding and challenging. However, I continue to maintain my international connections through my design consulting and digital artwork.
