Sobre mí

EDUCATION:
M.F.A. in Studio Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD (2004); M.Ed. Art Education from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA (1992); B.A. Art, West Chester University, West Chester, PA.

ART GRANTS/FELLOWSHIPS:
Artist/Educator mini grant from Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation (2008); Artist Fellowship/ Art educator grant from Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation (2007); 5-County Arts Fund Grant from the Philadelphia Cultural Alliance (2005).

Being a legally blind artist and art educator doesn't stop me from having a "vision" for my independent artistic work as well as teaching art to my students in the urban jungle of an inner city.

In my body of work shown on I.M.O.W. "Exhibiting You", I reflect on female issues of body image, beauty, and identity as it relates to a duality of physicality and spirituality.

In our society, ideals of perfection bombard us daily in most aspects of our lives. Ideals of normalcy also overwhelm us. Issues of What is normal and/ or perfect are based on external standards, mostly culturally influenced. I believe in the value of an individual's unique experience and journey as basis for a strong self-worth.

My artistic "vision" for change, as a legally blind person, is expressed as poking fun at ideas of perfection and celebrating and exploring the imagery of inner beauty.

de Su exhibición:

What is Size 0 supposed to be, anyway? Although there are women who are size 0, the fashion industry's coining of the term has psychological implications of nothingness, of not having a size, of not having an identity. And yet, it is still seen as desirable to be thin.

As a mixed-media artist, I combine traditional sewing techniques with newer digital technology to create figurative pieces that reflect on female issues of body image, beauty and identity.
