Using my art as a collaborative social justice practice began with NEST 89'. This tribute to the homeless women and children who resided at the YMCA in downtown Jacksonville, FL was the first community public art of it's kind in Northeast Florida. It made national news when a vandal set it on fire outside of the Jacksonville Landing and became an even more powerful metaphor for the struggle to end domestic violence.
Since 1989, I have continued to engage all ages in exploring and healing our sense place most recently by a winning proposal to daylight McCoys Creek in partnership with Landscape architect Amy Morie and Groundworks Jacksonville.
What does it mean to feel at home ? How can i help you feel welcome ? What can we hold as sacred together?
