bio & cv

I am a multimedia artist whose focus is on utilizing material collection and display as means of exploring experience and association. My artistic accomplishments include multiple rural artists residencies, and numerous outdoor artworks.

I find influence in the remnants of history, the ephemeral nature of all materials and the subtleties of human existence in nature. Having grown up in coastal New England and spending time in the mountains, I am keen to the relationship of industry and nature, and we as a society fit in between.

My training is in deign, fabrication and interrelated media. I enjoy the planning and logistics behind making large scale work for public viewing, as well as exploring the possibilities of digital communication.
