Some Things That Formed My Art Practice:
My parents are entrepreneurs, and I grew up conspiring with them on how to make a living.
Later, in a DIY music scene I experienced a creative community that blurred the line between artist and audience.
Bill Thelen, an artist and teacher, ran Lump, a project space slash gallery in Raleigh, North Carolina, for 20 years. I had my first solo show there.
Seeing a band perform is fun but kind of boring.
Growing up, my mother told me I was too smart to be an artist, that I could help the world more by becoming a brainiac chemist, and sometimes I think she’s right. I’ve worked at three movie theaters, four libraries and one small town garden center. Now I make fun things in my basement and sometimes perform live in the rain!
