I am an independent mixed-media artist, art facilitator, and creative coach located in Northern Minnesota, USA. I am an associate artist at In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre and Barebones Puppets in Minneapolis.
My art portfolio includes huge lightweight sculptures (suitable for homes, conferences, demonstrations, parades and other gatherings). I design graphic art and jewelry and am available for presentations, art facilitation and creative soul companionship.
