Art is a universal connector. I am a maker. My work is concerned with the collision and interpenetration of various forms of nature, mythology, art history and metaphysics. My practice is informed by the rhizomal effect, which is a scientific term that illustrates the phenomena of interconnection. Powerful art reverberates from consciousness to the artist to the individual to the community to the world. Art gives visceral substance to ideas and to the non-material strivings of the soul. Boulder, a community of progressive hearts and minds has been the home of my journey as an artist/activist.
With over 30 years as a Boulder resident, I have witnessed the consciousness of a community evolving and the art that followed, inspired and exemplified that expansion. My work has been an expression of this process. Now, more than ever, we are united in our vulnerability.
I was born in Northern California, attended school at Claremont College, Tribhuvan University in Nepal and graduated from University of Colorado with a BA in English Literature. In my long years of working as an artist in Boulder, I have been a supporter of cultural institutions in the community and beyond. For me, there is no separation between art and life, studio and home.
