ABOUT THE ARTIST
In 1992 I left university and moved to New York to pursue dance. I was training intensively in Ballet Modern and the Gyrotonic Method. I was a dance artist performing with several small contemporary companies in NY when, in 2001, I tagged along with a friend to 3 week Body Weather Farm intensive led by Min Tanaka in Japan. My whole vision of dance and myself as a dancer began to open. I stayed after the workshop to perform at PlanB and later continued my experiences and training in Butoh with teachers including Min Tanaka, Akira Kasai, Maureen Fleming,and Yokko.
I’ve dedicated my life to the creation of images, both still and moving.
After receiving my Master of Fine Arts in photography and film-making, I spent a decade in education, the last faculty position held with Sandy Skoglund at Rutgers University, Newark.
Being an educator – that is, sharing information – remains a part of my working fabric with the inclusion of clients as collaborators in the sessions’ creative process.
