Artist Statement
I make drawings, artist books and text-based installations and interactions that explore and expand the concept of the narrative. Project grants from the American Academy in Rome, Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the Leeway Foundation, the City of Philadelphia, National Association of the Partners of the Americas, and the University of the Arts Faculty Venture Fund have supported my investigations.
