My current work is engaged with Design and Design Thinking.


What did the Fellowship or Laureate mean to you at the time you received it?

It was an important recognition of my abilities and it was inspiring that others had high regard for my work.

What do you do now? Has your art evolved or changed?

My current work is more engaged with Design and Design Thinking.

What is one piece of advice you would give to an emerging artist?

Be true to yourself.

Briefly, how would you describe the state of the arts locally, as well as national and beyond?

Commercial art that is created to sell products proliferates, while art that is used for personal expression is much less appreciated and understood.
