I am a performer, visual artist, and puppeteer. My main interest as an artist is creating work in public spaces, using easily accessible resources and inviting others to do the same. I perform on stilts using a combination of dance, physical theater and acrobatics. Among the groups I have worked with are Nemcatacoa Teatro, The Carpetbag Brigade, Bread & Puppet Theater, and Great Small Works. My work in visual art includes painting, print-making, collage, drawing, and using found materials -- also known as other people's garbage -- for artistic purposes. As an arts educator I aim to inspire all people to dare to create, move, and see their surroundings from new perspectives.
