Personal Statement: I’m an artist-designer practicing exhibition design, a very exciting and expanding field. My practice is centered on museums and cultural venues. I follow a hybrid practice of combining art and design disciplines simultaneously. I move easily from two-dimensionally based art/design to three-dimensional projects that utilize time elements and physicality within a compendium of perspectives. Teaching at the college level takes me out of my comfort zone and exposes me to different modes of art-making and meanings, which in the long run, helps to improve my business model and professional practice.
