In my work, I deal with questions of humanism, social philosophy, and art in public space. I explore aspects of day-to-day living and social interaction. Like public and private space, social inclusion, interaction, engagement, and participation. Cities, streets, houses all become the sites of investigation in an on-going effort to better understand human nature and social cohabitation. I work in several mediums, including drawing, sculpture, and installations as well as public art.
