Digital Studio Visit, 2020
30 Minute Video Slideshow // Artist Talk

In this presentation, I delve into my practice and highlight some of the concepts and processes that I have been working with recently.  There are a few musical interludes featured, as well as two short video excerpts.  I hope you enjoy this insight into my artwork, and perhaps take away some interesting nuggets.

Please share with artists, teachers, friends, arts enthusiasts, your grandma and whomever you think may enjoy an artist talk & "studio visit".
