I believe that creativity is about connection. Creativity is about connecting different ideas and people, and finding their shared purpose to start something new.
I choose to exercise my creativity through art because I believe that art has the power to transform the spaces we share with one another—physical, mental, and emotional.
I believe that art is a power that is uniquely and innately human. Out of an estimated 8.7 million animal species on Earth, we are the only ones who attempt to record our image and the images of others. Why we’re the only ones is hard to answer. Why we do it has infinite answers.
I create and I advocate for art to teach, connect, revitalize, and immortalize. I’m excited to share how with you.
My studio practice is my R&D. Process and purpose are interdependent. I strive to make work that is thought-provoking, substantial, and masterfully done.
I believe in the power of public artwork and its ability to start conversations, shift perspectives, and transform the spaces we share.
I curate shows that foster community engagement in the arts. Creativity is about connection. Access to creative learning and experiences raises the bar for everyone.
In the king's court, only the jester gets away with critiquing the king. He does not seek the king's approval, and so he has it. He is honest, because he can make fun of himself.
I challenge conventional wisdom and work frequently between different--often disjointed--disciplines. I'm a "Jen" of all trades, master of some, enough to be dangerous on others. I tinker a lot. I care about understanding the nuts and bolts of what I'm doing and what the effects are. You might enjoy knowing that I built this experience for you, from the website to the logo and branding.
Artist, in actions and philosophy, inside and outside the studio and gallery.
Writer. A literary old soul with a foul mouth.
Lean methods practitioner and consultant. A disgustingly precise human being.
Hiker, climber, adventurer, joker. Lifelong learner and teacher. Headstrong and inquisitive. Idealistic and realistic. Full of wonder, grit, and shenanigans. An immeasurably lucky human being.
