I am a multi-media artist based in Atlanta, Georgia. My work addresses the battle and attendant healing inherent in the struggle to establish personal identity. This exploration evolves through a slow making process, whether that be paintings, artist books, pinhole cameras, short films, or clay sculptures, hand built or on the wheel; I deliberately create through reenacting historical, cultural traditions of my native south. Through this meditative process, and embedded in my culture, I reconsider this rich history to illustrates how cultural histories profoundly influence narratives enacted in daily, ordinary domestic life.
(b. 1966) I received her BFA from the Atlanta College of Art. The work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Asia and Europe including the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; BIG POND Artworks, Munich, Germany; Artists Space, New York, NY; 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, Hong Kong; the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC; and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Atlanta, GA. It has been critically received and reviewed in numerous publications. In addition to the studio practice, I sit on the boards of the Forward Arts Foundation, the Fulton County Arts Council, and the Cherokee Garden Library, advocating for fellow artists. The studio is at home in the historical district of Castleberry Hill- in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, and Western North Carolina.
