I am an artist working in a variety of media (sculpture, video, performance and photography). My work is usually informed by themes of nature/environment, and personal experiences.  This has inspired an on-going photography project in which I seek to convey life experiences of other people. 

One of these was of my husband who had a severe heart attack in 2013 and was ill for months. He survived thanks to the dedication of the medical staff, support from his family and the brave decision of the donor family to donate their loved ones' organs. The projected MRI image in Cardiac Portrait of Brian shows his new heart.   Heart Transplantee with Poodle revisits our traumatic experience.  Gino is one of our two rescue poodles who have been with us all the way.
