We are a collaborative team of two artists.  We are committed to the idea of artist as citizen and believe in the transformative potential of artwork in the community.  Our goal is to create a memorable public space and engage the audience in a lively and intelligent manner.  Our work is characterized by a strong profile, a sense of humor, and excellent craftsmanship. We believe that artwork can visualize and interpret the character of a place in a way that nothing else can, creating a space for imagination and possibility. Public spaces that contribute to the common good seem more important then ever today. Public art projects are an opportunity to overcome the apprehension many people feel about contemporary art by generating a connection between artist and audience, and if all goes well the result is a permanent addition to the community that is appreciated, discussed and valued.
