Place Matters.  We travel back to places we enjoy without thinking about the elements that contribute to making them positive environments. But there are ways that we can intentionally create places that matter.

As an artist I am on a mission to activate spaces. I am energized by the idea that positive change, albeit incremental, is possible one place and group at at time. So let's create vibrant places that matter.  Contact me to collaborate. Whether you are looking for paintings or graphic design support, I am happy to help.

I am currently a Program Associate for Arts Midwest and chair the Creative Placemaking Committee for Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Association. Previous design clients include Big Brothers Big Sisters, Springboard for the Arts, Creative St. Paul, Community of Saints Regional Catholic School, & Shirley Erstad’s campaign for Saint Paul City Council.
