I make sculpture and drawings that tap a non-verbal physiological landscape of body and space, provoking emotional, visceral and perceptual responses. I work with an expanded definition of drawing languages, and am influencing the resurgence of drawing in contemporary art.
My work has been in solo and group exhibitions at such places as The Drawing Center (NYC), Tegnerforbundet (Norway), SESC Bom Retiro (Sao Paulo), Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Cranbrook Art Museum, Nevada Museum of Art, Spencer Museum of Art, and Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, among many others. My work is held in collections of the Nevada Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, Spencer Museum of Art, Collection of Howard & Cindy Rachofsky, Niwako Kimono Company, US Sprint Corporation, H&R Block, University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, Missouri Bank & Trust, American Century Investments, Hewlett Packard and the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and others.
