The landscapes of my hometown in Connecticut are important to me. When I was young, I wandered through the woods and discovered a passion for storytelling. Now that I no longer live in New England, I miss the familiar landscapes of home. As a way to foster my sentiment for nature, I write poetry and build objects that depict landscapes. I combine my interests of Americana art and literature with brutalist architecture and modern furniture to construct sculptural installations. I primarily use concrete and hardwood to materially bridge the unnatural with the natural.
I received my Bachelors of Fine Art from Rhode Island School of Design in Furniture Design and my Masters of Fine Art from Virginia Commonwealth University in Craft and Material Studies. I am currently living and working in Richmond, Virginia as an adjunct faculty member at VCUarts.
