“As a student I participated in a Dollar Redesign project at The Pacific Northwest College of Art here in Portland, Oregon. For each denomination I chose an American of corresponding age. I relied on my background in American Cultural Studies to make gender and nationality choices that didn’t reinforce negative stereotypes. I chose to create decorative elements that reflect both American folk traditions and simple, modern patterns. The arrow motif is a nod to the fact that money is always in a state of motion.”
