I have been practicing photography since I was twelve. I have also been working with my dreams from an early age. My mother would write them down in a book for me. She also gave me the poetry of Rimbaud (or maybe it was from my father’s shelf), the Beats, and of our friend, Meridel Le Sueur. The other-worldly with a socially engaged component has since been an M.O. After art schooling in Brussels, the Great Books Program, and the Boston Museum School, I moved back to Minneapolis in its musical heyday. Since then I’ve been playing in many noise bands, painting, film making, dancing and photographing. When I moved to my current studio and created a Matta-Clark inspired installation, it became the Shoebox Gallery, which I have curated for five years. This year I was awarded the city’s Mosaic commission, celebrating its diversity.
