The joy and inspiration I get from doing this work makes me feel like I am part of a solution, bringing people closer to themselves. Not only does this reconnection to self offer healing through art, but that healing can harmonize the world. We are creators through our thoughts and emotions, and art facilitates growth in us all.

Memory Lane: A Public Art Installation

 Hastings Cultural Association: Sept-June 2010-11 Hastings on Hudson, NY.

I offer these houses as spirit houses, open to the memories, hopes and dreams of communities. As artifacts in the physical world they await their completion through the mind, imagination and spirit of each one who contemplates the.It is my belief that expressing our thoughts about our past and thinking ahead through hopes and dreams often helps to make things happen in our lives and in our communities. My intention with Memory Lane is to engage the public in a collaborative experience and celebration of home and community−−coming together to build a narrative of lives lived here, a chronicle from the viewpoint of individual memories, hopes and dreams, from ordinary residents, young and old.

Participation in public art, I believe, celebrates our diversity and strengthens our similarities.
