I have enjoyed a long career making documentary films and teaching social justice from a female perspective. My work is nurtured by a graduate degree in Philosophy as I strive to make art with moral meaning. My practice as a filmmaker began in my 40s while raising 3 young children as a single mother. I have been awarded 4 Emmy Awards for video art, & documentaries, and am winner of the 2021 Lascaux Poetry Prize.
While in my 60's, I also began creating digital photographic installations. I have had 2 local solo exhibits. Always I challenge power relationships and myths central to white privilege, misogyny and other prejudices in our society - for I think we too easily tell ourselves the wrong stories. These days our media culture itself shapes my digital art as I confront global undercurrents of unjust power.
I aim to make art in many media that shows the political power of a poetic approach – art that invites people to rethink their roles in the world in new and nagging ways.
