I have expanded and experimented with the mapping qualities of needlework as a ready-made overlay for organic design in both urban and rural settings, commenting on the public as personal and vice versa. 

My 2019 navigational chart series further explore this idea. 

 I have worked with The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, The Guggenheim Museum, Pratt Institute, Socrates Sculpture Park, MoMA PS1, Cooper Hewitt, Addison Gallery of American Art, Central Park Arsenal, and Green Public Art, as well as the New York City Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), and the City of Newport Beach, California Mamco, Geneva Switzerland and Le Consortium, Dijon, France.

Since my 2009 commission at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, Queens, I have had the privilege of creating site-specific pieces for the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, Jersey Barriers along the FDR Drive; tree guards and benches for Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn; hanging doilies in parks; and water jet aluminum sculptures  a Plaza in lower Manhattan and in front of P.S.1 Queens, NY.

"It's really important for me to create the feeling of handicraft in the city," "My goal is to make visible local history by providing symbols of comfort and community. I want to transform what can often be a banal experience into one with humanity and wit.  Public Art links communities creating cultural hubs by highlighting  ideals of place and identity. What could be better?"

On August 11, 2015,  very proud to have my award winning suspended sculpture, Chandelier, was installed in the new Little Italy–University Circle Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority.  A permanent piece. This station is located at the junction of two dynamic neighborhoods: Little Italy, one of Cleveland's most old-world neighborhoods, which remains traditionally Italian; and University Circle, which is home to the Cleveland Museum of Art, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Institute of Art, MOCA

Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic, and University Hospitals of Cleveland. Designed by Cleveland-based City Architecture, the station is surrounded by historic structures, newer buildings, and public spaces designed by firms that include Farshid Moussavi Architecture, James Corner Field Operations, Frank Gehry, CannonDesign, Phillip Johnson, César Pelli, and CMG Landscape Architecture, among others.
