To put it simply: I’m a Minneapolis photographer with a mild obsession with Barbie. Influenced by imagery from the 50s and 60s, I create scenes with the dolls in studio that have a sense of whimsy mixed with a little sarcasm. To me, Barbie is a positive, strong and empowering figure and I try to utilize her to create conversation. And to answer your question, I only have around 40 dolls.
I have lived in Minneapolis for over 18 years with my husband. I have a BA from Macalester College with a major in Studio Art and a minor in Political Science, supplemented with an Associate Degree from Minneapolis Community and Technical College in Photography and Digital Imaging.
My work has been shown at a variety of galleries, festivals and exhibits including: Mpls Photo Center, Gamut Gallery, Intermedia Arts, Nash Gallery, Robbin Gallery, MN State Fair, Uptown Art Fair, and the Twin Cities Pride Festival.
