The ambiguity of creativity continually propels my drive and passion into constant flux of gathering and assembling multiple definitions, theories and processes that guide my creative practice in art and design. These inquiries and insights incorporate vast, inconsistent, collaborative, uncertain, vulnerable, smart and critical approaches to my creative process. What does it mean to be an artist and how does creating, designing and producing art serve and perform in the twenty first century are questions that continually direct and guide my art practice and teaching philosophy.
