Artist’s Statement I believe art and culture can make essential contributions to the humane world we all envision. The experiences I’ve acquired working in diverse Twin Cities communities, throughout the state, and abroad have shaped both my worldview and the purpose of my art. In Outgrowth, Beyond the Walls I’m asking, “How do we define the concept of ‘home’ beyond the physical structure? Is it a sense of dignity, of security, of spirituality?” I looked for answers along Lake Street in South Minneapolis. Besides being a basic right for all human beings, I believe having a home is part of a centering and healing process we all need to meet our full potential, to live life with passion and hope.
