Originally from Philadelphia (PA, USA) I have been based in Glasgow for over 16 years and have presented and facilitated work in the USA, UK, Sri Lanka, India, Japan, Czech Republic, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Spain, Ireland, Canada, Syria & Lebanon. As my work is interdisciplinary in nature, I allow the environment and participants to define what media needs to be called into action. Forms can include dance, theatre, film, installation, writing, and baking to name a few! I am passionate about working in communities whether it be on the streets, in community centres, businesses, schools or universities.
My work as an artist is often durational and site specific. I am perhaps best known for my 484 days of dance I initiated at the Glasgow Broomielaw which gave me the title ‘Glasgow’s Broomielaw Dancing Queen’.
In 2010 I received a commendation from the Scottish Parliament for my contributions to dance and peacemaking in honour of UNESCO World Dance Day.
I am a member of Actor’s Equity and The Work Room (Glasgow’s Independent Centre for Dance).
I am the founder of the group Mother Artist Scotland.
I am a member of the Parent Council of Pollokshields Primary, and in the past held the post of Vice Chair for the Pollokshields Community Council. I believe in working locally to effect positive change for the community I live.
