PORTFOLIO

Please see my Portfolio for images and video from my arts-integrated projects, my performances, and performing-oriented residencies.  You can also listen to my voice students perform with my piano accompaniment, and view my photography.

PHOTOGRAPHY

My creative practice also includes photography. I photo-documented my students’ work while a teaching artist for CAPE’s three-year Portfolio Design Project, and have posted meditative photo-statuses to Facebook for several years now. With the encouragement of my mentor, Milwaukee photographer Francis Ford, and many informal fans, I had my first gallery exhibition at the Grafton Arts Mill in 2015.
