Hello! I am an interdisciplinary artist exploring intersections of abstraction, nature, color and pattern.
My work develops from a space of inquiry where ideas merge with material processes, where the investigation and the pieces themselves fuse with histories, associations and techniques. Using abstraction and fragmentation, I construct imagery and forms that investigate sensory experiences, connecting the physical with the psychological. This work comes about as a continual making and unmaking.
Whether out of ink, graphite, paint, wire, yarn, or fabric — the pieces that I produce reach toward an awkward, self-conscious, or interrupted beauty that is bound by perception, time, and sensitivity. With this in mind, I often feel that when creating work, the story that I am telling is different than the story told back to me — it’s as though the object has its own story to tell and sometimes I am just the listener who gives it shape.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My inspiration comes from many things. It is a combination of experiences and stories swirling together in a variety of colors, patterns, and forms.
I use handmade textile and painting techniques in my work. Some of these techniques have been passed down by women in my family and others are learned and adopted from academia.
My work is exhibited nationally and abroad. I recently completed an artist residency with SVA in New York. In 2009, I received my Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute.
