Public Art & Commissions

Public art can improve communities, especially when people participate in the creative process. I have had the privilege of collaborating with community members on some very meaningful projects including:

     -Creating a “peace table” with a bullet casing design to serve as a springboard for dialogue with inner city youth about nonviolent conflict resolution as the                  students sit around the table.

     -Constructing a traveling “healing tree” sculpture for community members to write about recovery from mental illness and addiction.

Commissions offer a great opportunity to create artwork that complements the client's space and aesthetic preference for a home or business.
