Studio Travels

Working my way around the globe, one village at a time.

DSC00157My studio travels with me while I am on tour with my dance projects or as choreographer. I mine the cities and villages that I visit for interesting ethnographic and antique jewelry, tools, bits and baubles and set up shop with fellow designers, in friends homes, or hotel rooms.

While its challenging to travel with supplies, it is worth it! The most exciting part of traveling w/ in tow, is that I often set up with fellow designers- in their studios sharing ideas, history, material management, muses, and process.

A special thanks to Lee Korbus and Rose Harden. Both are incredible designers, teachers and all around brilliant women.

Dance, Design, Installation Art, Performance, and Yoga are just a few of my interests. I am eternally a student. However, I also have almost 2 decades of experience teaching Dance, Art and Academics. I recently finished Yoga training and now teach weekly classes in Pittsburgh. I have also added yoga-based dance training to my dance workshop offerings.
