The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs has officially designated Downtown Burlington as an Iowa Cultural & Entertainment District.
This designation will have a positive impact on the quality of life and cultural vitality of Iowa, benefiting a significant number of individuals. By focusing on creating walkable, mixed-use spaces that serve as cultural anchors, the Iowa Cultural & Entertainment Districts program enriches our community and fosters a sense of civic pride. With 35 districts already recognized since the program's establishment in 2003, the state of Iowa continues to cultivate its cultural heritage and provide engaging experiences for residents and visitors alike.
Art is a powerful catalyst in sparking creativity, developing new ideas, and discovering new ways to approach problems. It isn't always the end product but the process that helps inspire our creative nature. We believe in creating opportunities like unique events and public art displays that encourage a more vibrant community. We want to see Burlington thrive.

To me, successful art works in any medium are a balance of complex forms. Although visually abstract, my work is profoundly influenced by the natural world. In daily life, I practice active listening and observation. So, while my work does not tell stories, it is a reflection of deeply immersive observations and preverbal experience. I am committed to sustainability and social justice issues as well as mentoring and giving back. When possible, I create work that has a dual purpose as both wall and functional art.
