What an honor to be included amongst 86 other Arizona artists, out of 1,351 entries, for the 2020 Arizona Biennial. Thank you to everyone who takes such care putting this show together. The works showcase the dynamic diversity and unique voices of Arizona artists, and in addition to the show, the renovations and new wing are a must see!

Waited for others to leave the space, held my breath, quickly took off my mask for a photo and snapped it right back on, Phew! 

“At this time of a global pandemic, as the very fabric of the American dream unravels, the artist’s voice sounds the alarm for what may be a very different world. Many of the participating artists address the challenges we face as a nation, including cultural inequities, domestic violence, gender politics and environmental threats. Art is a path to freedom, emancipation and equity."

          Thank you!

A great big thank you to all those who attended the reception and/or took a trip down to see,

Nos Sumus in hoc Unum, presented by

the beautiful Tubac Center of the Arts

It was such a pleasure meeting so many new friends and feeling so much support. I have my sights on another solo show in the future and need to get busy making new works. So many ideas, so little time. ;)

In the meantime I've decided to keep my previous thoughts about the show below.

Recently, I've been fortunate enough to have some really wonderful people of Tucson pose for some new works, in which I am really calling to the viewer to see them - to see us! To see our shared humanity, to be intrigued and have interest in each other, to take a moment to step inside someone else's story, to empathize, and know we share more with one another, than not. I've also started a series of works honoring endangered and extinct species and at the heart of both of these projects is really pleading for more empathy for our fellow humans and for the creatures we share this planet with. My hope is to honor the people and animals of this unique time, who are living these complex, heartbreaking, exciting, and beautiful lives. My works are my prayers that seek to remind us of what is most precious and that we are in this together (nos sumus in hoc unum).

Had the pleasure of being a member of Untitled Gallery where I met some life long friends and learned so much. Participated in monthly shows through out the year.
