Originally from a small town in Upstate New York, I have lived the last ten years in Chicago where I obtained my Bachelor’s of Arts in Conflict Transformation and in Art. I am currently a MFA candidate at the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana in the studio arts. While grappling with laborious actions of ritual and repetition I have found much of my recent work and material set to be toying with notions of mortality, cycle, and temporality through the poetic gesture. Through mediums of installation, performance and sculpture–and the use of both multiples and the juxtaposition of seemingly estranged objects–I collaborate in moments of pause, of recentering, of questioning. I see the process of making art as a practice of asking questions, research, and wonder.
