Connect with me in the “crowd”! Come find me inside my “crowd-funded” mirrored box. Reach inside from the “crowd” to make a basic human connection through touch. Simultaneously I will be making other basic human connections in the “crowd” on twitter @heARTbeatgalART #NBO13crowdbox.

“crowd” box instruction: Would you like to connect with another human? Does anonymity make it easier? I invite you to touch me. Human connection at its most basic. I cannot see you but I trust in the power of positive human inter-action. Or make a basic human connection in the “crowd” by ┬áreaching out on twitter @heARTbeatgalART #NBO13crowdbox

As an artist, at home in Centretown Ottawa, I am compelled to express the human form, the emotion that fills it, and, by contrast, the lonely imaginative urban landscape. I experiment with all media, play with photography, dabble in collaborative, inter-active conceptual art but am most drawn to oils and collage. Bits of paper, found objects, acrylic resin, and oil paint collide to build a visual story each filled with symbolic references exploring human connection.
