Public and Community Projects

The strength in how I execute public art projects is in the community driven nature from start to finish.  To me, this is the most exciting part about being able to facilitate a work of public art.   I offer my skill as an artist to a community in the hopes that my skill could address a specific need, whether it social, economic or otherwise.  This opens up the opportunity for making the artistic process accessible to people that otherwise might not have it available to them. I believe that the community acquiring the art should have as much opportunity as possible to help create it.  Creating art in the community is an excellent model to teach job skills, camaraderie, self-esteem, entrepreneurship, and increase social capital. The bonds that are created between the participants are some of the most rewarding things I have ever experienced.  I aim to facilitate all of these things in the projects that I work on.  I also believe that the process is as important as the product.
